Schoolgirl with magnetic hands

A schoolgirl from Serbia has astounded medics by being able to stick objects magnetically to her hands.
Nearby Nis University has called for scientists to investigate the phenomenon. Department head Pavle Premovic stated "I'd say this is a kind of unknown bio-magnetism. More experts would need to join me and research what this is all about."
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.

I can do similar if my hands are a little sticky or sweaty.

She probably just has sticky skin, like every single other person who has claimed this. Coins can't be picked up by magnets either, at least not US coins.

She's 10, and obviously not that large. She'd go flying and stick to any car that drove by. (giggle) Why do I picture this girl hanging out with Wile E. Coyote?

There's another family in India (I think) where the father and his sons can do this all over their body. Apparently it's attributed to small pores and smooth skin so it creates suction or something

Maybe when she's older, if the story is legit, she'll learn to mentally control her ability and push/pull metallic objects to her. How cool would that be? Wonder if it works with all types of metals.

the fact that coins are not ferromagnetic bothered me, too. I watched a sponge bob episode today that made the same mistake.
