Shocking new video showing the power with which an airbag is inflated has revealed why you should never rest your feet on the dashboard of a vehicle.
The video, posted by Narrabean Fire and Rescue on the northern beaches of Sydney, shows the windshield of the car that bursts with the impact of deploying the airbag.
& # 39; I didn't think this was actually something, I thought you just wanted to ruin my pleasure & # 39 ;, said a commentator on the video.
The video follows an online safety plea last month from a woman who lost half of her skull in a car accident after the blow sent her knees to her head.
Grainne Kealy was 22 years old when she was sitting in the front passenger seat of a car that hit a wall in 2006
New video shows the impact power of an airbag that is deployed in a car from the dashboard
Grainne Kealy was 22 years old when she was in the front passenger seat of her friend's jeep and hit their car against a wall in 2006.
The Irishwoman was left unrecognizable after she broke every bone in her face when the airbag was inflated and her knees stopped at 320 km / h in her head.
The now 33-year-old has previously posted photos of her recovery online.
Last month, she also posted a warning that others would learn from her mistake after seeing a trend of celebrities who put photos with their feet on the dashboard.
& # 39; This breaks my heart to think of how many millions of people have seen these celebrities with their feet on the dashboard. I can only hope that people will eventually learn from my mistake, & she wrote.
Mrs. Kealy has warned about copying celebrities who have posted images of themselves with their feet on the dashboard

Mrs. Kealy said she has no memory for the three months preceding the crash, the crash itself, and the following month.
She also said that she has acquired a Brain Injury where she loses words in the middle of conversations, that she has difficulty concentrating and that she constantly gets a headache.
In 2006, the same year as Mrs. Kealy's injury, the NRMA reported that 400 Australians had been admitted to hospital due to injuries caused by putting their feet on the dashboard, according to Yahoo.
