A first-time flyer thought the conveyor belt at check in was there to take her to the plane.
Surveillance cameras at the recently opened Istanbul Airport in Turkey, show a woman stepping on to the luggage conveyor belt expecting it to take her to the plane.
The video shows the unidentified woman stepping onto the scales and waiting for luggage to pass her on the conveyor belt.
She then steps on the belt, falling flat on her backside.
The two check-in assistants jump to their feet and bring the conveyor belt to a halt.
It is unknown whether the woman injured herself in the mishap.
