Mad, the Magnetic Boy is back and he looks like he has put on a bit of weight since he first appeared in the news back in February 2011 — see Incredible Magnetic Boy (Video) — perhaps hes been eating magnets!?
Six-year-old Croatian kid Ivan Stoiljkovic astounds his family and the people in his village thanks to his magnetic body.
When he takes off his shirt the youngster is able to stick metallic objects such as spoons, mobile phones and even frying pans to his body.
In total, his family says, he can carry up to 25kg of metal stuck to his torso.
And that isn’t the end to Ivan’s unusual talents.
According to his family Ivan has also used his ‘healing’ hands to alleviate his grandfather’s stomach pains and take away the pain of a neighbour who hurt his leg in a tractor accident.
Bizarrely, it’s not just metal that seems to be attracted to the youngster. China plates and bowls seem to adhere themselves to Bogdan’s chest as well!
