American woman addicted to drinking petrol

A US woman is addicted to drinking petrol.

The lady, known only as Shannon, claims to drink up to 12 teaspoons of the dangerous liquid per day, and she prefers to consume it straight out of the can.

She told TV channel TLC: "It tingles at first and then it burns the back of my throat. Even though it hurts me, it makes me feel good.

“I take the cap off and breathe in the fumes that come forcing out of the can."

Shannon said that she will continue to drink the substance despite realising it could kill her.
