Man from India dies after being sucked into MRI machine

The man, identified as Mr Rajesh Maru, was accompanying his elderly relative into the MRI room when the incident happened. When he entered the room, the MRI machine's powerful magnetic pull sucked him in.

The police has registered a case of causing death by negligence.

Medical implants and devices like rod plates, pins, screws, or metal mesh objects as well as metallic objects, such as jewellery, clothing with metallic fibers or threads, zippers, buttons, hooks, or underwire aren't allowed inside the MRI room. Since the machine was on, the strong magnetic field of MRI scanner sucked Maru in and he got trapped between the oxygen cylinder he was holding and the MRI machine.

The family has also been compensated about A$9,700, The Mumbai Mirror reports.

Mumbai: A man carrying a liquid oxygen cylinder was killed when he was yanked into the jaws of an MRI machine and inhaled the gas that leaked out of the container. He said,

"An FIR was filed and an enquiry committee has been set up, which will give a report in a week's time."
The family says the ward boy had asked Mr Maru to take the cylinder inside. Maru's brother-in-law, Harish Solanki (46), and three others were present at the hospital when the freak incident occurred.

Maru was a resident of Lalbaug and the sole bread earner of his family.

In 2001, a six-year-old boy undergoing an MRI scan in NY was killed when a metal oxygen tank flew towards the machine and crushed his skull.
