Woman crawls into x-ray machine to protect her handbag

A WOMAN was so concerned about her belongings that she crawled into an x-ray machine with her handbag. The commuter was worried that her valuables could be stolen.

The Daily Star of UK reported yesterday that the incident took place at Dongguan Railway Station in China's southern Guangdong Province.

After putting her luggage onto the conveyer belt, she refused to be separated from her handbag. She was said to be carrying wads of cash given to her for Chinese New Year.

Security staff insisted that her handbag had to go through the scanner. Fine by her, but she followed, crawling into the machine with her handbag.
