Parents are quick to say their kids are attractive - but two Serbian sisters mean it literally. They claim their sons, 4-year-old David Petrovic (pictured) and 6-year-old Luka Lukic, have an unusual ability to attract metal objects with their bodies alone.
What explains the phenomenon? "As far as I know, there is no medical or scientific explanation," Mihajlo Dodic, a radiologist in Belgrade, Serbia, told the Associated Press. He said the cousins' magnetism borders on the "paranormal." But other experts have been dubious of previous cases of "human magnetism." What do you think? Keep clicking to see more photos...
Here's Luka Lukic in his garden. Luka's father, Slavisa Lukic, said doctors have examined both Luka and David, and deemed them perfectly healthy, though they should be monitored as they grow up.
Luka (pictured) and David are both happy to put on a show for visitors. On cue, the boys smile proudly and raise their hands in the air to show that cutlery and plates stick to their bodies without assistance.
How did Sanja Petrovic, David's mother, first learn of her son's "magnetism?"
"I asked him to fetch me a spoon so I could feed his little brother, and he yelled back: 'Mom, it sticks!'" Petrovic said. "I found him with several spoons and forks hanging from his body." She then called her sister and found that Luka had the same attraction.
"Other kids in the family can't do this, just the two of them," Petrovic said.
"I was in shock at first, but now we just try to keep the knives away from them," Petrovic said.
