This mother could only scream in horror as her five-month-old baby was crushed to death

FRESH details have emerged from a horrifying incident at Spain's Alicante Airport, where a five-month-old baby was crushed to death in a baggage carousel.
The baby's mother has been identified as 32-year-old American accountant Nathania Terry. 

The Daily Mail spoke to Mrs Terry's uncle, who said his family was devastated by the tragic incident.
"The family is going through a difficult situation right now," he said.
According to police, Mrs Terry climbed onto the baggage carousel to retrieve a baby stroller while holding her son. Mrs Terry accidentally caused the belt to start, and she lost her grip on the baby, who fell onto the moving carousel.
"The mother left the baby on the conveyor belt, which can be activated by detecting weight or by an airport employee," a spokesman for the Spanish Guardia Civil said.
"It seems that the baby carrier's weight activated the belt and the child was trapped in the rollers in the drop zone."

Airport staff said the accident happened in seconds. Mrs Terry had no time to react, and could only scream in horror as her baby was killed. Medical staff could not revive the child, and he was declared dead at the scene.
Mrs Terry and her Canadian husband were reportedly en route to the resort town of Denia for a vacation. The Daily Mail says the couple is staying at the hotel where they previously planned to holiday, awaiting the outcome of a Spanish police investigation.

Family members have visited the distraught couple, and The British Red Cross has sent both a psychologist and a social worker for support.
