A one-month-old baby has been checked and cleared by a Los Angeles hospital after being put through an airport X-ray machine.

Authorities at Los Angeles International Airport say an inexperienced traveler mistakenly put her grandson through a carry-on luggage screener.

A startled security worker noticed the shape of a child and immediately pulled the baby out.
A spokesman for LAX says the incident Saturday was an innocent mistake.

In 1988, an infant in a car seat went through an X-ray machine at the airport.
