    Shanghai railway police are reminding parents to keep a close eye on their children, after a young boy went through an X-ray baggage scanner at one of the city's train stations on Sunday - as his absent-minded mother gabbed on the phone.

    As the mother and the son approached the security check, the little boy suddenly jumped onto the scanner.

    Calling after the "naughty boy," a security officer tried to stop the boy when he saw him getting on the scanner, which is only meant the belongings of train passengers - and not passengers.

    But the officer was unsuccessful and the boy went through the scanner.

    Not surprised.. air travel in China particularly at domestic airports and on local flights is like nowhere else in the world.

    When you combine folks that are potentially traveling for the first time, or hundredth time that is occupied with everything but your kid, this is going to happen. Kids are kids especially when they aren't taught how to behave. It was an experience dealing with kids that are even more unruly than your own. :mad:
