Have you ever worried your belongs might be stolen when you go through security checks? This passenger in China certainly did.
A woman insisted that she climb into an X-ray machine with her handbag at a train station because she feared it might be stolen otherwise.
Security staff were shocked to see the silhouette of a woman as they monitored the X-ray screens.
The bizarre incident occurred on February 11 at a train station in Dongguan, southern China’s Guangdong Province, according to Pear Video.
Extraordinary images show the female passenger, still wearing her high-heeled shoes, kneeling down on the conveyor belt behind her belongings as they went through the check.

Pear Video’s footage also shows the woman climbing down from the X-ray machine afterwards.
She then checked her handbag and a suitcase before leaving the checkpoint.
The incident happened as millions of Chinese people pack their bags to go home for the upcoming Lunar New Year, which falls on February 16.
The Lunar New Year travel rush, dubbed the largest annual human migration, began on February 1 across China.
Around the nation, some 390 million people are expected to travel by train in a 40-day period.
A total of 2.98 billion trips would be made by the 1.4 billion Chinese citizens by train, bus and air during the epic holiday season, according to China Central Television Station.
