A passenger collecting luggage at a Moscow airport slipped as she reached for her dog carrier and was accidentally swept away on the baggage carousel, local media reported Sunday.

The passenger, a woman in her late 50s, flew into Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport from Belgrade on Saturday.

"She was waiting to collect her luggage by the baggage carousel when she saw a pet carrier with her dog and reached for it," a transport police spokesman told Moskva news agency.

"Apparently losing her balance, she fell onto the conveyor belt and was carried away to the luggage room."

The woman was fined for damaging the airport's freight transportation system -- which carries a maximum fine of 1,500 rubles (20 euros, $24) -- police said. Transport police could not immediately be reached for comment.

The long haul to restore Soviet model for collective living .
Neglected and abused, Moscow's Narkomfin apartment block, a Soviet masterpiece admired around the world, is finally being restored to its original, pioneering state. Architect Alexey Ginzburg is leading the project and for the first time since the 1940s, he says it looks like how his grandfather Moisei Ginzburg intended.Standing on rows of elegant black pillars, the 1930 long, low-slung block was built at a time when Soviet architects influenced global trends with their radical, yet functional style, known as constructivism.Narkomfin was designed to look light and almost float above a surrounding garden.
