    What's that in your carry-on?

    Baby put into X-ray machine at Los Angeles airport

    LOS ANGELES, Dec 20 (Reuters Life!) - A woman sent her one-month-old grandson through an X-ray machine at Los Angeles International Airport, security officials said on Wednesday.

    The woman, who spoke little English and was traveling to Mexico, put the infant in a plastic bin used to hold loose carry-on items for security scanning at the busy airport on Saturday morning.

    Security screeners saw the baby as it started to pass through, pulled the bin out, and immediately sought medical assistance for the child, Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez said.

    The baby was examined at a local hospital and judged not to have received a dangerous dose of radiation.

    "The lady obviously mistakenly put the baby in the machine. It was an unfortunate incident," Melendez said.

    Airport officials said it was an innocent mistake by an inexperienced traveler and only the second such incident there since 1988, when a baby in a car seat went through an X-ray scanner.

    Your logic is twisted. Read the article again, it was clearly a large mistake. To say otherwise would be ignorant simply because the facts state otherwise.
