An 18-year-old woman in Australia has been freed from a bomb that was either placed near her or attached to her body for more than 10 terrifying hours.
“She’s good. She’s been kept in a very uncomfortable position,” New South Wales state Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Murdoch said, according to the Associated Press. “She has been and will be uncomfortable for a little while to come.”
The Sydney Morning Herald has identified the teen as Madeleine Pulver, the daughter of wealthy businessman William Pulver. This has fueled speculation that the situation was an attempted extortion plot, but police will not comment on those reports. . .
