San Francisco news crew is mugged live on air


A video is going viral of news anchor reporting live from San Francisco who was mugged when assailants wearing ski masks stole the crew’s camera and equipment on Friday, reported UPROXX.

The anchor, Cara Liu from KTVU, was reporting from Pier 14 in the California state city at 6 a.m. when the camera man, Alan Waples, was pistol-whipped by the masked men before the equipment was stolen.

Such incidents have prompted news stations to beef up security for reporting live on locations.
