A US Airways employee was killed Friday after he became lodged in the baggage handling system at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport, police said.

According to Phoenix’s Fox 10, 60-year-old Robert Demarco got entangled between the upper and lower conveyor belts of the luggage sorting system around noon. Phoenix Fire Department personnel were called and Demarco was pronounced dead.

“This appears to be a tragic accident and Phoenix Police detectives will be working hard to determine exactly how and why this incident occurred,” Officer James Holmes told Fox 10.

US Airways spokeswoman Michelle Moher said Demarco was a maintenance worker and had been with the company for several years. He was working on the baggage system when the accident occurred.

The airline is working with investigators to find out exactly what happened, Moher said. There are no indications of foul play.

Police said the incident happened out of public view.
