UPDATE (5:49PM – August 3rd): The bomb, after being inspected, is actually a “legitmate” looking-fake bomb. This was an elaborate hoax, and investigators are still working on discovering who was involved.
Dailymail - An Australian schoolgirl who spent more than 10 hours with a bomb strapped to her by a hooded intruder who broke into her house was reunited with her parents tonight after a dramatic rescue.
Police bomb disposal experts, who had sought advice from British military authorities as they delicately worked to free Madeleine Pulver from the explosive package that had been attached to her, finally freed her from her terrifying ordeal – into the arms of her relieved mother and father.
The 18-year-old girl had been startled by the balaclava-clad intruder who left the device attached to her – as well as leaving, it is believed, a ransom note for her wealthy parents.
Her father, William, is the CEO of an internet share dealing company, called Nielsen Net Ratings and is said to be one of the richest men in Australia.
The drama was played out in the exclusive Sydney suburb of Mosman – home of multi-millionaires, sports figures, stockbrokers and bankers.
Police assistant commissioner Mark Murdoch admitted last night in the minutes after the girl was released from the device that bomb squad officers still did not know how dangerous it was.
But he indicated that it was not a fake device. ‘It was examined right away for explosives and the delicate action we have taken in regard to it shows how serious the situation was,’ he said.
Mr Murdoch said neither he nor the trained bomb squad officers had seen a device like it before.
‘It is a very elaborate device and remains so. Our bomb technicians are one of the best in the world and it has taken them more than 10 hours to remove it.’
The tension that had been on Mr Murdoch’s face throughout the afternoon and evening in Australia fell away last night when he announced at midnight that ‘minutes ago we have secured the release of the young lady and she is safe and sound. She has been reunited with her parents.’
