Have you ever been in an ironic situation? But, as you were recording a live feed to air on national television later?
That’s exactly what happened to a Chicago TV News team who were reporting live on a string of robberies that happened in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. The News crew were accosted at gunpoint by three armed men wearing ski masks.
“They were approached with guns and robbed. Mainly it was personal items, and they took a camera,” Luis Godinez, vice president of news at Univision Chicago, told the Chicago Tribune.
He said that the News crew were filming a story about robberies in the West Town community that was slated to run on the morning news. He said the footage they shot was in the stolen camera, and the story never made it on the air.
