LOS ANGELES (AP)
A woman mistakenly put her 1- month-old grandson through an X-ray machine at Los Angeles International Airport, officials said. A startled security worker noticed the shape of a child on the carry-on baggage screening monitor and immediately pulled him out, the Los Angeles Times reported in a story in today’s editions. The infant was taken to a local hospital, where doctors determined he did not receive a dangerous dose of radiation. “This was an innocent mistake by an obviously inexperienced traveler,” said Paul Haney, deputy executive director of airports and security for the city’s airport agency. The incident happened early Saturday, airport officials said.
