Is that Augustus Gloop being sucked up from Willy Wonka's chocolate river?!
That was our first thought when we spotted this photo of a baby stuffed into a tube on Reddit. But, not to fear, this cutie patootie is just getting an X-ray!

The contraption in the image is reportedly called a Pigg-O-Stat and prevents children from being exposed to radiation during X-rays. And although you can't see it in the picture, the tot's legs are actually hanging quite comfortably.
Can we just say how impressed we are that this baby is chillin' and NOT screaming bloody murder, because we certainly would be!
Commenters had different reactions to the instrument. One person wrote, "It might look hilarious, but it's a d--n life saver...I use one every time I do a chest X-ray on a baby," while another said, "This thing is awful. My daughter needed an X-ray when she was five months, and she screamed the whole time."
