This is the moment a passenger climbed into an x-ray machine because she did not trust train security staff with her handbag. An unbelievable photograph shows the women on all fours on a conveyor belt as she follows her bag as it passes through the security scanner.
It is thought the woman did not want to be separated from her bag and its contents at Dongguan Railway Station in China’s southern Guangdong Province.
Video from the digital news platform Pear Video, linked on the Facebook page of the state-run People’s Daily newspaper and widely picked up online, showed a guard apparently telling the woman that, yes, small bags need to go in the machine, too.
The woman rode through the security screening machine on Sunday in the southern city of Dongguan because she wanted to protect her money, the People’s Daily’s Facebook post and other media reports said.
Many Chinese migrant workers carry their annual earnings home to family in cash during the Lunar New Year holiday, the busiest travel period of the year.
But security staff told her this bag would also have to be checked and so she reluctantly wheeled back round and placed it on the conveyor belt. But officers were stunned when she started to climb on herself and were left so speechless they did not stop her as she collected her bags and rushed to get her train. Dongguan Railway Station staff have advised passengers not to ride the X-ray machines saying radiation given off by the scanners can be harmful.
