An incident took place in Argentina with a TV reporter called Diego Demarco. He was gearing up to start his live broadcast for the channel when a man snatched his phone and ran away as fast as he could in broad daylight.
The footage was posted on YouTube where Demarco, covering for the local channel called ‘El Vivo El Nueve,’ was getting ready to go live. As he was fixing his mask and turned slightly away from the camera, a man came in and snatched his phone. He ran as fast as he could with Demarco on his tail.
