Man killed after being sucked into MRI machine.

For those who do not know, MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The magnet is so strong it will suck ANYTHING metal right out of your hands! And you best not have any metal surgical implants either or things might go wonky.

This guy should have thought it through before entering the room with a METAL oxygen tank! YIKES and double YIKES!!

No, but this bad boy WILL get your attention. Technicians have to use plastic tools to work on it; no metal screwdrivers, wrenches, etc.

The moment you walk into the room holding a metal screwdriver, this bad mother will pull it right out of your hands and thrust it at HIGH VELOCITY into the center of the magnetic"donut". Anyone standing in the way of your missile screwdriver might end up DEAD.

A few years back, a cop went in for an MRI and forgot to remove his metal gun. The magnet yanked the gun right out of his holster, the gun flew across the room and banged into the magnet with such velocity it FIRED! Luckily, no one was injured......

You did it again Cid ... This would be like hitting the wall in a car at 100 mph.

If you'd ever had an MRI, PET scan etc. you'd know that story is pure bullshlt. Nobody goes near that machine in street clothes.

With Husky around the place is beginning to resemble the National enquirer.

If you do a web search it does happen but it is a rare occurrence. There are numerous safeguards in place to prevent this from happening. There will always be mice who can beat the mouse trap.

Leading causes of death:

1. Heart issues
2. Cancer
3. Prescription drugs
4. Doctors and Hospitals

The majority of doctors and nurses do a great job at patient care. That said, there are a few whose incompetency will most certainly kill you dead.

I've dealt with them one on one and have experienced their stupidity up close and personal. Anytime I visit the ER or ANY doctor, I first turn my medical malpractice sniffer up to its highest setting......
