Patient escapes injury as MRI ‘sucks up’ wheelchair

An MRI suite in China may have become the scene of a near-tragedy. According to numerous reports, the machine’s magnetic field “sucked up” a patient’s wheelchair like a vacuum cleaner.

The UK’s Daily Mail is among the outlets reporting that the patient wasn’t hurt—and that the patient’s family isn’t on the hook for a possible repair bill since the scanner is still under warranty.
