Terrifying moment man sets Porsche on fire as woman sits inside it at petrol station in China


CCTV footage captured in Shenzhen on December 16 at just after 3pm shows a man rush towards the Porsche as it was being refuelled. 

He pulled out the fuel gun and ignited the gasoline. Flames quickly engulfed one side of the Porsche.

Another man who had been standing behind the Porsche rushed forward to help the woman out of the front of the car.

The two of them ran clear as petrol station staff rushed forward with extinguishers and swiftly put out the flames, preventing a deadly explosion.

It was unclear whether the woman was the driver, or the car was a left or right-hand drive.  

The man who started the fire was detained by police and the incident is being investigated.

It was a very different outcome when a driver drove away from a petrol station in Jieyang, Guangdong province, south-east China, with the gas pump still in his fuel tank. 

Shocking video footage from April 2019 shows the petrol pump being knocked to the ground and sparking a fire which then exploded into a massive blaze.

Prior to the blaze, the footage shows the driver pulling away from the petrol pump and yanking it down at 8:50pm local time.

Petrol station staff, customers and nearby residents were evacuated as the fire quickly grew out of control and engulfed the entire area, according to Guangzhou Daily
