An explosive scan

Have you ever endured an MRI scan?

Normally patients are advised to remove all metallic items to avoid issues with the magnets associated with the machinery but for some reason best known to herself a 57 year old woman from Wisconsin took a loaded handgun in with her.

Not perhaps the brightest of moves since on entering the machine the firearm was attracted to the magnets in the machine when it was turned on resulting in a loud blast as the gun went off firing a single round straight into the the woman’s right buttock.

The patient was examined and found to have suffered only superficial injuries around entry and exit holes of the projectile.

It’s still unclear quite how the woman managed to take the gun into the scanner as the routine screening for metal objects showed nothing on her, and she herself confirmed that she was not carrying any metallic items. 

She was taken to hospital after the incident and later reported to be recovering well! 

Just 2 months ago a nurse at a hospital in San Francisco was injured after becoming trapped between a scanner and a hospital bed that was dragged towards the machine by the powerful magnets!

Oh dear!

For her historical feature this afternoon Margaret Mills took us over to VALANCE HOUSE in Dagenham which was built by Robert Dimes in around 1240 and is now a library.

Listen here to what Margaret had to say on this great house: –

I very much hope to have your company again in the New Year, but meanwhile may I wish you the merriest of Christmases and a very, happy, prosperous, healthy and most of all peaceful New Years!
