Watch terrifying moment TV reporter is robbed at gunpoint on air in broad daylight outside football stadium in Ecuador
THIS is the dramatic moment a TV reporter and his crew were left staring down the barrel of a gun before being robbed outside a football stadium in Ecuador.
Journalist Diego Ordinola was reporting for Directv Sports when the incident occurred outside the Isidro Romero Carbo Monumental Stadium – home of club Barcelona SC.
While filming on air, the crew were abruptly interrupted when a member of the public approached them pointing a gun in their direction.
Wearing a face mask and a cap, presumably to help hide his identity, the man reportedly asked for phones and their cameras.
According to Explica, one of the crew behind the camera handed over his phone before the man ran off.
The crew then attempted to film the man fleeing and spotted him on a motorbike with an accomplice escaping the area.
Ordinola uploaded the dramatic footage to Twitter alongside the statement: "We can't even work quietly, this happened at 1:00 pm outside the Monumental Stadium.
"The @PoliceEcuador promised to find these criminals."
The footage was retweeted over 5000 times, many with messages of support.

"Let's unite to eradicate crime in Ecuador."
