Car wash owner Billy Barnwell was shocked when he pulled up footage from his surveillance cameras and saw a woman attempting to vacuum gasoline from the trunk of her vehicle.
As you might expect, the vacuum exploded and the woman got the shock of her life. The woman drove off after the incident and never returned, which was a bit frustrating to Barnwell. He estimates it’ll cost $500 to repair.
The local news crew showed customers the video to get their reaction, and they couldn’t believe it. Here are some quotes from the car wash customers…
“What are you thinking? I think even a child would know not to do that.”
“Wow, that’s not good. And then she just stands there and watches it.”
“She thought she could vacuum up gasoline. Thank God, no one was standing over there. What could have happened, I don’t even want to think about it.”
That’s the important thing to remember here. No one was injured. Yeah, it’ll cost some money to repair, but at least this woman’s mistake didn’t kill anyone.
