TV Crew Robbed at Gunpoint on Live TV

A TV news reporter in Ecuador went from reporting the news to being the news when an armed robber held him and his crew at gunpoint on live TV.
Soccer reporter Diego Ordinola was delivering a live report outside a soccer stadium when the gunman ran up to them, pointed his gun, and demanded their phones. After someone off camera handed over a phone, the robber ran off, hopped onto the back of a motorcycle, and drove away. But the cameraman kept rolling and followed the brazen thief as he got away. It’s unclear if police have made an arrest yet.
