Now this is up to the minute, live action news!
A KIMT News 3 (Rochester, MINN) reporter became part of the story Tuesday when a suspected bank robber he was reporting on ran past him during his live shot.
As Adam Sallet started a live broadcast covering the bank robbery, he was stopped by a bank employee who runs out of the building, points off screen and tells Sallet the bank robber just ran by.
“What? Oh, that’s the robber,” he says. “Uh, this is live TV, folks. That’s the robber that just went by.”
Before Sallet runs off screen, he says, “I gotta go here and call 911. I’ll talk to you later.”
The station did report that the 36-year-old suspected robber was arrested after allegedly trying to rob the Rochester bank again. He previously escaped police after an attempted robbery of the bank on Monday.
