    An Australian restaurant has been fined after its staff “dumped” two drunk, unconscious women on the street.

    The incident at the Korean BBQ diner in Sydney was one of the worst breaches of liquor laws in years, authorities said.

    The group of three women had each consumed eight shots of Korean soju liquor within 35 minutes, before two of them collapsed at their table.

    Waiters and other diners then carried the unconscious pair out of the venue, and left them on the footpath.

    One woman vomited while she was being removed, the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA) said in its report.

    The women only received medical help when patrolling police people noticed the group of people gathered outside the Gangnam Station restaurant.

    “It’s hard to imagine a worse case of a venue failing in its obligations to prevent misuse and abuse of alcohol,” an ILGA representative said.
