On October 9, a child took it upon himself to get an unconventional (and not professionally prescribed) X-ray scan, utilizing a railway station's security checkpoint bag scanner in Zhongshan. The youngster climbed onto the conveyor belt at Guangzhu Intercity Xiaolan Railway Station while his father and security personnel were preoccupied. 

In the video, you can see the child's father walking through the body scanner, moments later realizing his child is no longer behind him. After walking back to the front of the security checkpoint, the boy is still nowhere to be seen. A few seconds later, he emerges from the luggage-inspecting machine confronted by an upset dad.

According to Xiaofei Shipai’s Weibo account, staff members hurried to turn off the machine after realizing a child was inside the high-radiation security detector. 

Chen Jiahao, sergeant of the Xiaolan Railway Station, said in an interview with Today's Frontline News, "It's possible [the man] was a bit anxious to board the train, he wasn't closely looking after his child. Because kids are pretty curious by nature, he climbed onto the X-ray scanner." Chen offered up some advice for parents dealing with wandering offspring, saying "when passing through security, keep your child in front of you." 

In February, a woman at Dongguan Railway Station also decided to take a ride on the X-ray machine, to accompany her precious purse.
