Patrick Hogan, an airport spokesperson, said that the boy dove onto the bag-screening belt where it leads to Terminal 1 ticketing, before it heads to the back of house system.

Minutes after the boy climbed on the conveyor belt, police were able to find the boy who was unharmed. The boy was traveling with a group of 20 people, and released back to his parents.

"There was a lot of confusion because there were so many people in the group. They were all checking their bags and putting their own bags on the conveyors, so it took a second for them to realize he was missing — but as soon as they did people sprang into action and the police were able to find him quickly." Hogan told MPR news.
