Real-life Magneto can stick metal to his body

A young schoolboy from Syria has acquired the remarkable ability to magnetically attract objects.
Zulfikar Ibrahim, who lives in the Syrian port city of Latakia, allegedly discovered his unique talent after dropping an item of cutlery at the dinner table and finding that it had stuck to his skin.

"We were eating, the spoon fell, I picked it up but it stuck onto my belly. I was astonished," he said.

"My grandfather took off the spoon, wiped it and put it again on the tray. I took a fork and a spoon, and they stuck [onto my stomach] again. Everything made of iron was sticking. I was astonished."
The story is similar to that of Russian schoolboy Nikolai Kryaglyachenko who in 2014 found that he had acquired the ability to stick objects magnetically to his body after an electrical accident.

"I got to know that there were other magnetic boys," said Zulfikar.

A video showcasing his bizarre talent (along with some interviews in Russian) can be viewed below.

In this case the family needs money I think. Well cannot blame them. Whether this is possible due to magnetism otherwise is not answered at all from here.

Complete nonsense. I suppose if you swallowed a very powerful magnet...

Certainly didn't prove anything. Needed close up shots of attaching and removing items. FAKE

Uh, no. It just doesn't work that way after digestion.

I think I could replicate it by eating a melting popcicle with my shirt off.

Flatware sticking? Yeah, just rub a light, virtually unnoticeable coating of honey on the flatware (or persons body)

Oh yeah, not to mention that a common compass or "phone-app gauss meter" would help establish the truth.
