(Guangdong) A woman went through extreme lengths to make sure her bag is safe during a security check at a station in China. According to Chinese media, the woman startled security officers at the Dongguan Railway Station in China’s southern Guangdong Province last Sunday (Feb 11) when she climbed into an X-ray machine while holding on to her handbag.
X-ray images later show a silhouette of the woman, still in her high heels, kneeling on all fours behind her belongings.
Security camera footage then shows her climbing out of the machine and checking her handbag and luggage before leaving. She was oblivious to the warnings and stares of security staff. Passengers have been advised not to go into X-ray machines as radiation given off by the scanners could be harmful.
The bizarre incident happened amid the world’s largest annual human migration as millions of Chinese return to their hometowns for the Chinese New Year which falls on Feb 16.
