THE mother of a baby who died at Alicante airport on the carousel is taking legal action.
The woman, who was holidaying with her family from America, had put her five-month-old daughter, in the car seat on the stationery conveyor belt, when the weight caused the carousel to start moving.
The infant died from injuries after falling between a gap in the two moving belt in September 2013.
According to a US paper, the family are suing the Dutch company who supply luggage handling systems to airports. They are seeking damages for negligence, design defects and no proper warning methods.
An enquiry into the incident confirmed that although the mother rushed to rescue her daughter within seconds, there was no hope of saving the child.
Following the enquiry, the Government stated that the carousel had functioned correctly and the accident was the responsibility of the child’s mother.
