25 mm screwdriver bit damages engine after being there for around 100 flights

ATSB report

No injuries. ‘Only’ damage to an engine.

Thought it interesting the pilots mentioned the ‘startle’ factor - real world being both louder and with more vibration, than a sim. Also they had never practiced a low-speed rejected takeoff - needing a different technique to high-speed rejected takeoffs.
Would the screwdriver bit be magnetic, and could this have been stuck somewhere because of that?
