Russian scientists have been unable to disprove a teenage girl who claims she has x-ray vision and can see inside human bodies.
Doctors at Saransk's children hospital carried out exhaustive tests on 16-year-old Natalia Demkina whose claims she has x-ray vision has gripped the Russian public.
But so far they have been unable to come up with a logical explanation for the vivid and detailed accounts she gives of what she sees when she looks inside the human body.
But according to Russian daily newspaper Izvestia, the scientists have so far failed to explain the vivid and detailed accounts she gives of the inside of bodies.
The teenager, from Saransk in Mordovia, said she had been upset that the doctors had not believed her but was pleased they had not claimed she was lying.
She added: "I am worried now that they might be hiding something from me about why I can see through objects. I don't know how it works, but I can see through things."
Her mother Tatiana Vladimirovna added: "I knew she was talented girl as she started to talk when she was only six months old and she learned to read when she was three years old.
"When she started to claim she sees through things that worried me. That's why I wanted her to undertake tests in the local hospital."
