A TV crew in Ecuador caught an armed robbery on tape last week. Unfortunately for them, they were the victims.
Ecuadorian sports journalist Diego Ordinola was recording a standup outside the Estadio Monumental in the city of Guayaquil last week when a man with a gun approached and demanded their phones. The camera operator kept recording and followed the man as he sped away on a motorbike.
Ordinola posted the video of the robbery on twitter:
Ni siquiera podemos trabajar tranquilos, esto ocurrió a las 13:00 de hoy en las afueras del Estadio Monumental.
La @PoliciaEcuador se comprometió a dar con estos delincuentes. #Inseguridad pic.twitter.com/OE2KybP0Od

The Google translation reads, “We can’t even work quietly, this happened at 1:00 p.m. today outside the Monumental Stadium. The @EcuadorPolice promised to find these criminals.”
