Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Officials at a Chinese railway station are asking passengers not to crawl into X-ray machines after a woman who refused to part with her handbag did just that.

Staff at the Dongguan Railway Station in the southern part of the country said a woman traveling during the Lunar New Year rush on Sunday attempted to take her purse with her through the security scanner, but she was told the bag would have to go through the X-ray machine with the rest of her luggage.

Security camera footage from the station shows the woman place her bag on the conveyor belt before crawling into the machine after it.

The footage shows a security guard laughing in surprise as the woman climbs out of the machine and continues on with her luggage.

Station officials said they want to remind passengers not to enter the machines as the radiation can be harmful.
