Woman crawls into x-ray machine to protect her handbag

Woman climbs into x-ray machine because she didn't want to leave her bag

"You see new unusual things every day", a person wrote on social media after seeing the Dongguan footage.

A woman in China went as far as inside an X-ray machine to keep her valuables in sight as she allegedly did not trust the security staff with her handbag.

A video showing the woman's silhouette as she passed through the X-ray machine at a railway station on Sunday has gone viral on the Chinese internet.

When you're about to go on any trip, one of the biggest ball-aches is getting through security. As I'm sure they would be.

The woman left onlookers shocked at Dongguan Railway Station in south China when she climbed into the security scanner.

Security officers did not stop the woman who collected her other bags before going to catch her train.

And while it is unclear what she was carrying in her handbag it is likely to have been wads of cash traditionally given as a gift for Chinese New Year.

Thankfully, the woman wouldn't have been exposed to that much radiation from the machine, but it's always best to avoid it if you can.

She placed her purse on the conveyor belt and then climbed on herself so she could ensure the safety of her bag and the valuables inside.

Cameras in a Chinese airport captured the moment a passenger chucked himself in a large scanner at a security checkpoint.

In the video, she rides the machine's conveyor belt and appears on the other side to the surprise of several other passengers waiting to collect their possessions at the station in the southern city of Dongguan.
