US woman carries gun into MRI, shooting in her buttocks as it goes off

New York: A woman in the United States escaped serious injury when the handgun she carried into MRI screening went off shooting in her buttocks.

The incident, occurred on June 28 involving an unidentified 57-year-old woman, was documented in a report filed with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

The firearm discharged after its metal trigger tripped when the machine’s magnets were engaged in the screening process, according reports.

‘It was reported that a patient was brought into the magnet room with a concealed ferrous handgun. In the process of entering the bore, the handgun was attracted to the magnet and fired a single round. The patient received a gunshot wound in the right buttock area,’ the FDA's record said.

The woman suffered superficial injury with the bullet penetrating subcutaneous tissue.

The woman was hospitalized and after treatment ‘She went on to make a full recovery,' according to the report.

It is not known how the woman snuck the weapon into the screening machine unnoticed by the doctors.

‘The site reported that prior to the exam the patient had undergone a standard screening procedure for ferrous objects, which includes weapons specifically, and answered no to all screening questions,’ the FDA report read.

In a previous incident a Brazilian lawyer was killed after the handgun hidden in his waistband discharged into his stomach.
