Mumbai: Man dies in Nair Hospital after getting sucked into MRI machine
A relative of the victim yesterday said the powerful magnetic field of the machine pulled Maru towards it along with the oxygen cylinder.
The 32-year-old man died after he allegedly inhaled an excessive amount of liquid oxygen in the MRI room at a hospital, a senior police official said on Sunday.
Saturday's Nair Hospital incident reminded technician Swami Ramaiah, 43, of the day he got stuck in an MRI machine at the Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC), the Navi Mumbai division of the Tata Memorial Hospital, Parel.
CCTV footage of the horrific event has been handed over to authorities as a part of their investigation.
The B Y L Nair Ch Hospital & T N Medical College is among the premier medical institutions of Mumbai.
According to the Daily Mail, Mr Maru's uncle, Jitendra Maru says his nephew was assured the MRI machine was turned off: "The ward boy who was supposed to prevent such incidents told my family members to go inside when the machine was turned on".
In an accident of freakish nature, a man was killed instantly after getting stuck into an MRI machine just when he walked into the room carrying an oxygen cylinder. When they finally managed to pull him out, his fingers were severed and he was unconscious.
When Solanki and the ward boys pulled him out of the machine, Maru's body was swollen and bleeding heavily. They were waiting for the doctor outside the MRI room, when a ward boy attached to the ICU told them to take the oxygen cylinder inside.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners use strong magnetic fields, electric field gradients, and radio waves to generate images of organs in the body.
A ward boy had previously said that bringing the cylinder into the room was fine. They can can become projectiles and can injure, harm or kill a person. But relatives should ideally not be allowed inside.
Patients with implants like stents, cochlear implants, knee implants are not to go for MRI diagnosis.
