“I have no idea what’s going on there. I really hope Elissia is okay,” Hill said immediately afterwards.
“This is a very scary moment that just happened live on air.
“I don’t know what to say. I heard screams in the background and it’s pretty scary.
This is probably the scariest moment of my broadcasting career,” Hill added before going on hiatus to check if Carnavas was okay.
He later took to Twitter to confirm that Carnavas was the victim of an alleged attempted theft car.
“Call to Elissia Carnavas who had a horrific experience live on air tonight when thieves tried to hijack her car,” he said.
“Luckily she got out of that situation and is fine.
“The scariest moment of my career, that’s for sure, and we’re just relieved that she’s okay.”
Carnavas lives in Brisbane but it is not clear where she was at the time of the attempted car theft.
Listeners were quick to share their concerns and relief online in the moments following the broadcast.
“The sound of it made my blood run cold, as horrible as it gets,” one user shared on Twitter.
“Thanks to Simon Hill and the team at Global Game for navigating this moment as best as they can and hopefully having all the support she needs.”
“That was insane,” added another.
‘During tonight’s Global Game, the guest who spoke to Simon Hill on a phone interview had someone attempt to hijack her car midway through the interview.’
