Paulo Amorim The 'Magnet Boy' From Brazil

Brazil, after 'Christ the Redeemer' statue in Rio de Janeiro now has another attraction and no, its not another tourist spot or any other building of ruin, but, it is a 11 year old boy, Paulo David Amorim whose body works just like a magnet when metal is around.

Thats right, metal sticks to Paulo Amorim's body just like it sticks to a magnet and its not just small metal. His bodily magnetic qualities can attract metal which includes spoons, scissors, camera's, phones and even heavy pans can stick to his body.

Paulo's doctor say that he hasn't studied such a case in 30 years of his medical study and practise. Paulo's school friends have started calling him the 'magnet boy.'

Paulo first found about his magnetic powers when one day he was at the table grabbing a spoon which attached with his body. He than went to the doctor who found nothing wrong with his health. Doctor's after properly checking Paulo have declared that he is not at risk with his magnetic powers.
