He can't seem to believe it either.

South African journalist Vuyo Mvoko was about to do a segment outside a hospital in Johannesburg, when two men approached him and the crew to hold them up at gunpoint, stealing cellphones and a laptop. And because it was in front of a camera, you can see the whole thing. Cool move, robbers.

It's very weird to watch Mvoko standing calmly with his earbuds in as he gets cased by the people who will jack his stuff seconds later. You want to shout, "Behind you, look behind you!"

Then someone, probably the field producer, tells the rest of the newsroom why they can't do their segment and he sounds more incredulous than upset.

"We're being mugged. We're being mugged. Yes."
