A correspondent with CNN Brasil was robbed on-air Saturday morning, The Daily Mail reports.
Bruna Macedo and her crew stationed themselves near the Bandeiras Bridge in São Paulo to report on the rising water level in the Teté River due to heavy rains. However, during the segment, the individual appeared in the background looking over a bridge barrier while Macedo spoke with the CNN news anchor, Rafael Colombo.
Macedo took a couple of steps back and handed one of her two cellphones before the control center panned away and focused on a shot of a street. The TV correspondent subsequently handed over a second phone before the robber fled the scene.
Colombo said, “She had a terrible scare, but she is fine.” He noted she suffered no injuries and returned to the bureau after the incident.
