Chroming on Werribee Line

Footage of chroming on Werribee train

The Neil Mitchell program obtained exclusive footage of two men chroming on a city-bound train on the Werribee line this morning.

Rebecca, a 3AW employee, filmed the incident on her mobile phone on a 7:10am train and said the two had paint on their faces and clothes.

Footage of two people chroming on Werribee Line train:

'Chroming' is inhalation of solvent-based products, such as paint or glue, which when  inhaled causes intoxication or a 'high'.

"They were just sitting with their bag just inhaling it. They'd do a spell of inhaling, sit there for a little while and then pick up the bag again," Rebecca said.

Rebecca said she'd never seen people chroming so brazenly.

"The smell was really intense, most people were coughing, a couple of people were visibly ill."

"Everyone was too scared to press the (emergency button) in case they went nuts."

Rebecca said one of the men had passed out, and his friend had to wake him when they had arrived at their stop - Southern Cross Station.

  • It is astonishing to see the spelling and grammatical errors in the comment by John, 30 March, 2012, 11:11. Shouldn't health care professionals be able to use accurate grammar so their records can be clearly understood when people's lives depend on it? As for chroming, it is a tragic waste of young people's lives. Have some humanity and help them for goodness sake. I've known some who have done it out of the bleak despair of family breakdown, homelessness and complete lack of hope. That is their reality and it shames Australia. Show responsibility to them before judging from a position of sheer luck of birth.

  • It's not the fact people are sceard, it's more the fact of ones safety you can never predict one other retaliation of any situation when it comes to drugs n alcohol use, I categorise chrooming as drugs due to the effect it has on ones brain cells!!
