Woman follows beloved bag into X-ray scanner at Chinese train station

Chinese woman rides through X-ray scanner rather than parting with purse

Local media reported that Dongguan Railway Station staff have advised passengers not to ride the X-ray machines, as radiation given off by the scanners could be harmful. After all, it's not every day that you find a human inside a security check.

Don't we all feel scared that our belongings may get stolen or misplaced during a security check?

A WOMAN was so concerned about her belongings that she crawled into an x-ray machine with her handbag. I can see them thinking.

It's still not known why the woman climbed into the X-ray machine.

According to South China Morning Post, the incident happened about 6 pm on Sunday at Dongguan railway station in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.

Screengrab of a video showing the woman climbing off the belt of the X-ray machine. An eerie X-ray images of a Chinese woman crawling through a luggage scanner at a railway station to protect her hand bag has become the biggest hit in the social media ahead of Lunar Year celebrations tomorrow.

Despite the best efforts of the machine's operators to deter the woman, she travels the full length of the conveyor and emerges, along with assorted items of baggage, at the far end.

"Do not [put] yourself into the security inspection machine", passengers were told.

As you can see by the video above, security didn't even stop the woman as they were probably too shocked at what was unfolding.

The woman was anxious the money in her handbag could be stolen while it was being inspected, according to a social media post by the Yangcheng Evening News.
