Infant Accidentally Put Through Airport X-Ray Machine


A one-month-old baby is okay, despite being put in an airport x-ray machine.

Police say an inexperienced traveler mistakenly put her grandson through a carry-on luggage screener at Los Angeles International Airport.

A startled security worker noticed the child on the screening monitor and immediately pulled him out.

Doctors say the infant did not receive a dangerous dose of radiation.

This is not the first time something like this has happened at LAX.

A similar situation happened back in 1988.
