Man Sprays Would-Be Robbers With Gasoline During Carjacking Attempt

A video showing a quick-thinking driver spraying gasoline at would-be carjackers is going viral on social media.

According to reports, the incident took place at a gas station in Chile. In the video, a man can be seen gassing up his vehicle and minding his own business.

Suddenly, a white van pulls up and parks dangerously close to the victim's white sedan. Three men exit the vehicle and quickly approach the sedan driver.

Luckily, the quick-thinking driver avoided the carjacking by yanking the gasoline nozzle out of his vehicle and started spraying the suspects and their car.

The three male suspects jumped back into their van and fled the scene. It's not clear what happened after the incident.
