Brazilian 'Magnet Boy' can draw to himself and carry metal objects on his body.
An 11-year-old boy has baffled doctors with his unique 'power' to draw metal objects as big as casserole pots to himself and carry them on his body.


Paulo David Amorim, dubbed the 'Magnet Boy,' can carry metal objects such as spoons and scissors on his body, Sky News cited Brazil's TV Globo.

The boy's father, Junior Amorim, said he found about his son's ability when he asked Paulo to bring a knife and fork and much to my surprise, they stuck.

Paulo David, who comes from the Rio Grande do Norte state, said his classmates have started calling him 'Magnet Boy' and ask him to demonstrate his 'powers' in class.

“In school, everyone asks me to put things on my body, they think it is a trick,” he said.

Doctor Dix-Sept Rosado Sobrinho said although he had never seen anything like Paulo David's case in his 30 years medical experience, the boy's health was not at risk.
