Not the airport's problem.
I hope that the toddler is okay. Well, it would actually be the mother's problem because she left him unattended. So, you are right.
I work in an airport and see parents "looking away for just a second" all the time. "Looking away for just a second" translates to they were sitting there looking at their phone and not paying attention to what their kid was doing. We once had to threaten to ask a person to leave because she kept allowing her child to play on the escalators. The child kept sitting on the up escalator facing the opposite direction of travel while her mom sat in a chair looking at her phone. She was warned several times, but never heeded the warning.
agree, some parents do not get it
I know. I work in the aquatics field for my city's recreational services. You and @isardriver all have the same points. I can agree with you guys as well.
Yes those are xray units. Dose would depend on how long he was in there. presumably the operator stopped when they saw the kid. a few seconds would not be very harmful, certainly not as much as a single CT scan. Probably the equivalent of a couple chest xrays. not enough to cause a problem.
