This is the moment a passenger climbed into an x-ray machine because she did not trust train security staff with her handbag.
An unbelievable photograph shows the women on all fours on a conveyor belt as she follows her bag as it passes through the security scanner.
It is thought the woman did not want to be separated from her bag and its contents at Dongguan Railway Station in China’s southern Guangdong Province.
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.
The woman had happily put her suitcases through the machine before walking through the security checkpoint holding the smaller handbag.

But security staff told her this bag would also have to be checked and so she reluctantly wheeled back round and placed it on the conveyor belt.
But officers were stunned when she started to climb on herself and were left so speechless they did not stop her as she collected her bags and rushed to get her train.
Dongguan Railway Station staff have advised passengers not to ride the X-ray machines saying radiation given off by the scanners can be harmful.
