Chinese woman climbs into X-ray machine for this weird reason

"You see new odd things every day", a person wrote on social media after seeing the Dongguan footage.

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.

The woman had willingly placed her suitcases for the security check but later when it was pointed out that her handbag would be treated no differently, her reluctance transpired.

Have you ever anxious your belongings might be stolen when you go through security checks? As I'm sure they would be.

The video of the woman passenger going inside the X-Ray machine has gained utmost attention on a social media platform.

The incident happened about 6pm on Sunday at Dongguan railway station in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.

Staff were reportedly so stunned they didn't stop her when she collected her bags and bolted to get her train.

Security camera footage then showed her climbing out of the machine and checking her handbag and luggage, before walking away nonchalantly.

And while it is unclear what she was carrying in her handbag it is likely to have been wads of cash traditionally given as a gift for Chinese New Year.

"Do not [put] yourself into the security inspection machine", passengers were told.

Thankfully, the woman wouldn't have been exposed to that much radiation from the machine, but it's always best to avoid it if you can.

Would you ever climb into an X-ray machine for your precious belongings?

X-ray photos show the woman on all-fours on the conveyor belt of a security scanner at the station.
