The Magnet Boy Of Croatia

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Bogdan, the magnetic boy from Serbia, has some competition in neighboring Croatia. Ivan¬†Stoiljkovic, the Magnet Boy of Croatia is not only “magnetic” but can also apparently can emit heat from his hands and has healing powers. I think that these two should have a competition to see who is the true magnet champion of the former Yugoslavian republics. Winner is whoever gets the most ridiculous object to stick to their chest.

Ivan, 6, is purported to posess an extraordinary and seemingly magical talent: the ability to attract metallic objects — from spoons to heavy frying pans — to his body. He is said to be able to carry up to 25 kg of metal stuck to his torso. Ivan’s family also claims that his hands can emit heat and his mysterious ability has also given him healing powers. “Medical checkups so far have reaped inconclusive results,” reports Reuters. More images follow, in which Ivan “attracts” cutlery, cookware, an iron, and other metallic objects.
