Schoolgirl with magnetic hands

A Serbian schoolgirl has amazed medics with her astonishing magnetic hands. Ten-year-old Jelena Momcilov has been picking up cutlery, coins and even metal furniture by just touching them at her family home in Zeljusa, since she first discovered her powers five years ago. Now experts at nearby Nis University have urged scientists to investigate, reports CEN. This could be a kind of unknown bio-magnetism. 

It all started in 2004 when Jelena was watching a TV show with a girl who had the ability to attract objects. They would "stick"to her body as if both objects and the girl were magnetic. Curious, just like any other child, Jelena tried it and it worked for her as well. She showed her abilities to her mother Slavica and father Venko. Their initial surprise turned into a worry that this type of play (Jelena definitely perceives this as a sort of a game) may have negative effects on her health. This concern soon dispersed because Jelena remained in good health despite attracting objects repeatedly just for fun.

A reporter from Serbian magazine Trece Oko (Third Eye) sent a reporter to talk to the girl and her parents. They ruled out the sticky sweat theory. When Jelena held a hand of Uros, a kid from a neighborhood, the objects were sticking to his hand as well. As soon as she lets go, the object fall off his hand. The reporter asked her to repeat this and she did three times. One more piece of data in this puzzle is that radios and cell phones sometimes have reception problems around her as well.
