Woman launched into air during bungled petrol theft

Police in Australia are seeking public assistance after a woman was thrown in the air and petrol left gushing from a broken bowser in a daring drive-off at Mt Warren Park, on the outskirts of Brisbane in southeast Queensland, last week.


Surveillance video shows the scantily clad woman go flying after she tries to cling to a petrol pump torn from its bowser as the car lurches forward.

Police said drivers were so determined to steal petrol they were now risking the lives of their family and friends.

Police said the incident occurred at the Mt Warren Park Caltex after an alert console operator approached the car to check the registration plates.

They are still searching for both offenders and want anyone recognising the alleged offender to contact police.
