Two-year-old Lorenzo was at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Monday when his mum Edith Vega placed him down for a short moment to print a boarding pass.

"For a person to actually go through this is very rare", she says. "I couldn't even catch up".

Two-year-old Lorenzo was with his mother at Atlanta International Airport in the USA state of Georgia when he wandered away from her during check in.

"'I just went blank, I was, like: "Hey, my son.", I wanted to jump in and try to go get him but they didn't allow me", she said. "I'm just grateful he's here". I was just freaking out, and I'm, like, 'Oh my goodness.

Lorenzo's right hand was fractured in the incident, and he was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.

Vega said she was told her son was on the belt for about five minutes.

"También están los hijos de 'El Chapo', obviamente, y otros, todos están en nuestra web, pero para nosotros Rafael Caro Quintero es algo personal", dijo al diario español El País .

Una cinta transportadora del aeropuerto arrastra a un niño durante 5 minutos
La madre de Lorenzo contó que lo dejó un momento en el suelo para poder imprimir el billete de embarque y en seguida desapareció. Las autoridades del aeropuerto realizan las investigaciones correspondientes tras el accidente.

Train and air passengers face more delays after record-breaking temperatures
Both train companies have said services will continue to be disrupted over the weekend while Network Rail carry out fix work. The knock-on impact of the technical problems means many flights are still being delayed or cancelled.

It is unclear how he sustained his injury. He seemingly tried to crawl back on the belt to the counter but was unable to climb over a purple hardshell suitcase before being pushed through a baggage drop.

"We are now working with the TSA and airport officials to ensure all protocol was followed. We wish the child the best in their recovery", the statement read.

The boy traveled along the conveyer belt through restricted areas of the airport until Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials safely removed him.

Security video shows Lorenzo being pulled through a rubber curtain, beyond the reach of his mother and an airport worker. The airline says the closed counter wasn't staffed.
