Aviation Fuel sniffing prompts Warning in Australia. 
Australian Northern Territory Australian health officials have warned of a "serious" incidence of children inhaling Aviation fuel in the Northern Territory.  Security camera footage shows children breaking into the remote Elcho Island Airport and siphoning fuel from planes.
