A woman was arrested in Australia after driving with a potentially lethal blood-alcohol level, according to reports Friday.
The 39-year-old woman from Stanthorpe, Queensland, was charged with drunk driving after she was allegedly found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.407 percent.
The Australian legal limit is 0.05%, so she was just over eight times that.
The woman was scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 9, according a statement issued by the Queensland Police.
Echoes of Nevada incident
Her blood alcohol concentration was similar to that of a boy who recently died in Lyon County, Nevada, according to a report by TV station KTVN.
The 14-year-old reportedly suffered cardiac arrest after drinking enough to bring his blood alcohol level to around 0.4 percent.
He was transported to a hospital and placed on life support, but died Tuesday.
