A video showing the woman's silhouette as she passes through the X-ray machine at Dongguan's railway station is now all the rage online with Lunar New Year travel and protection of location a priority. More than three million people had viewed it by early last night. The clip also shows her riding out of the contraption on the conveyor belt to the other side to the amazement of passengers waiting to collect their possessions that went through the machine unaccompanied.
The woman was worried money in her handbag could be stolen during inspection, according to a post by the Yangcheng Evening News.
But many people mocked the woman, calling her a "weirdo" and saying she valued money more than her own well-being.
For it's well known the powerful X-rays used in the machines are harmful to health.
