An online video from China shows a young girl, bored of waiting in line at a train station, sneaking through an X-Ray machine meant for baggage inspection.
The girl crawled into the X-ray machine when her parents and security officers were not paying attention at Daminghu Railway Station in Jinan, in eastern China's Shandong province on Monday, according to reports in Chinese media.
The girl goes down on all fours to enter the machine and is seen a few seconds later getting up to walk away from the other end of the scanner, to the bewilderment of security officials and passersby.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, the radiation emitted by X-ray machines is 1 millirad or less, while the average level we are exposed to in the natural environment is 360 millirad every year, reported the South China Morning Post.
A similar incident was reported from China's Dongguan railway station in February last year. A Chinese woman went the distance to protect her handbag while traveling through a train station. She joined her precious cargo on an X-ray conveyor belt before casually moving on to her destination.
The woman was passing through Dongguan Railway Station in southern China on Sunday when she tried to walk through the security scanner with her purse.
When she was ordered to put her handbag through the scanner like everyone else, she climbed onto the belt — purse in hand — and rode through the scanner on all fours. Footage from Pear Video shows x-ray images of the woman on all fours, guarding her purse from potential thieves. After the incident, train station staff now feel the need to warn travelers not to enter the X-ray machines, because radiation is potentially harmful to humans.
