Baby put through airport X-rayDecember 21, 2006 - 9:48AM
A woman mistakenly put her one-month-old grandson through an X-ray machine at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities 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 for a story in Wednesday'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 traveller," said Paul Haney, deputy executive director of airports and security for the city's airport agency.
The incident happened early on Saturday, airport officials said.
Haney said in 1988, an infant in a car seat went through an X-ray machine at the Los Angeles airport.
" The committee finds Mr Scrafton's claim that he told the Prime Minister on November 7 2001 there was no evidence to substantiate the children overboard story is credible, His claim is credible - the clear implication of his evidence is that the Prime Minister mislead the Australian public in the lead up to the 2001 election. -chairwoman Jacinta Collins "
