It’s So Hot In Australia That A Man Perfectly Cooked 1.5kg Slab Of Pork In His Car

It’s So Hot In Australia That A Man Perfectly Cooked 1.5kg Slab Of Pork In His Car

If you're in Australia at the moment, chances are it's hot... very hot. Parts of the country have experiencing some absolute scorching temperatures and records are being broken all over the place.

It's a timely reminder to never leave someone or something you love inside a car on a hot day - because it can be fatal.

But one man in Perth wanted to demonstrate just how truly sweltering it can be when you're locked inside a tiny space in the sun with little to no fresh air.

Stu Pengelly chucked a 1.5kg slab of pork inside his Datsun Sunny and let it bake in the sun for a whopping 10 hours. He checked on it sporadically throughout the day and was absolutely gobsmacked when he saw how hot his little vehicle was getting on the inside.

In a Facebook post, Stu said: "My warning is do not leave anyone or anything precious to you in a hot car, not for a minute and if you do see kids or dogs in a hot car."

He added that on his Datsun, the 'tinted windows, door and window seals are shot and there is a big rust hole in the roof', which prevented the car from getting even hotter.

According to News Mail, it can take just six minutes inside a car where the temperature is more than 50 degrees for tragedy to strike.

Bundaberg Police Senior Sergeant Michael McGarry said doing this will save you being pinged for vandalism and an expensive fine.

He said: "A member of the public can either call us or the RSPCA for a response, certainly we'll get there as quickly as we can depending on the information that we've received mainly around the state of the animal that's in the vehicle.

"We have powers under the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act to enter a vehicle in any way reasonably necessary to ensure the safety of that animal."

The only way you can get around this little rule is if you think there is an immediate threat to life and waiting for emergency services could result in the loss of life.

It's a tough judgement call to make.

Sgt McGarry added: "Common sense prevails, and personally I wouldn't watch an animal die, I'm going to do what I can.

"[The owners] can make a complaint and it would be investigated as such but we would look at all the circumstances and make a judgment call as to whether it would be in the public interest to prosecute someone who has caused minor damage to a vehicle to save an animal's life."
