A 6-year-old boy from northern Croatia truly has a "magnetic" personality, and he's getting some attention online.

The boy appears to have magnetic powers, holding metal objects to his body.

A YouTube video shows family members putting spoons, a remote control and even a frying pan to his upper body.

His family says he can carry about 50 pounds of metal on his body, but that he tires quickly when doing so.

His powers don't stop there. They say he also has eased pain from injuries when touching impacted areas.
