Aviation Fuel sniffing prompts warning in Australia

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. Petrol sniffing is not a new challenge to hit remote communities, but Aviation fuel is even more dangerous because it contains lead, local officials said. Lead exposure can badly damage the brain and nervous system.   Health officials believe more than 100 youths - one as young as seven - have inhaled the fuel on Elcho Island and a nearby area since March last year. "Our kids are ending up in hospital by getting infected by chemicals, which is bad for them," one Aboriginal elder, John Gurrumgurrum Burarrwanga, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.
