Security staff told her that this bag would also have to be checked and she reluctantly circled back to the airport-style luggage scanner.

It's virtually impossible for your stuff to get stolen on the conveyor belt.

The woman's freaky actions startled security officers at the Dongguan Railway Station in China's southern Guangdong province on Sunday (Feb 11), according to Chinese media.

The woman reportedly didn't trust train security staff with her handbag.

When she is not allowed to carry her handbag with herself, the woman puts it in the scanner and crouches inside the machine.

Wearing a pair of heels, she jumped up on to the conveyor belt and personally escorted the bag through the scanner.

The incident has since made global headlines and prompted a warning from the station staff - a warning which we read on the Chongqing Morning Post website after using Google Translate.

A woman was so concerned about the safety of her bag that she refused to let it out of her sight for a second.

Hordes of passengers wait to board trains at Shanghai's Hongqiao Railway Station as the annual Spring Festival travel rush begins ahead of the Chinese Lunar New Year in Shanghai February 12, 2018.

The incident happened as millions of Chinese people pack their bags to go home for the upcoming Lunar New Year, which falls on February 16.

The woman passenger, however, did not face against ill-effects, the security staff members at the Dongguan railway station warned all the other passengers not to indulge in such exercises.

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.
