Yesterday, Alexandar Hennessey is a prime example that our world is even more connected digitally as he was the victim of a dramatic attempted robbery at gunpoint on the streets of Buenos Aires. The whole incident was captured on his GoPro camera.
“I was on a bike tour in a rough part of Buenos Aires (Argentina) in broad daylight,” the description to his video on YouTube reads, “when a thief attempted to steal my camera gear at gunpoint. I miraculously happened to be recording with a GoPro on my forehead and captured this amazing piece of footage!!”
The footage is more than just a curiosity: It was subsequently sent to the Argentinian police, and “the robber was arrested later that day,” the Facebook page for Global Degree—a travelling-themed online show Hennessey features in—confirmed.
