A woman sent her 1-month-old grandson through an X-ray machine at Los Angeles International Airport, security officials said 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 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.
