Chinese woman follows handbag into x-ray machine

A woman at a southern China railway station climbed onto the station's x-ray security machine to follow her bag, fearing it would be stolen as it went through, according to a BBC report.

Although she placed another suitcase on the machine's conveyor belt, she tried to walk through the security scanner with her handbag, the BBC report said. When she was prevented from doing so, she climbed on the conveyor belt behind her belongings, surprising staff at the Dongguan Railway Station when they saw her silhouette on their monitors.

The woman is one of millions expected to travel by train for the Lunar New Year holiday, which falls on 16 February, the BBC said.
