GoPro: Robbery Caught on Helmet Cam of Bicyclist in Argentina (Video)

By    |   Friday, 19 Sep 2014 04:14 PM

A tourist and participant in the show "Global Degree" managed to capture an attempted robbery in Buenos Aires on his GoPro camera.

Alexander Hennessy had the GoPro attached to his helmet while he rode a bicycle, and it kept running when a robber pulled a gun and demanded, in Spanish, that Hennessy hand over his backpack.

On the video, which was posted on YouTube, Hennessy is seen trying to tell the man that he doesn’t speak Spanish and doesn’t understand what he wants.

In the video, Hennessy offers the irate man his bicycle and attempts to run away, but the robber chases him, continuing to ask for the backpack. Finally, people who were biking with him arrive and they find a policeman.

"I filmed that entire thing on my GoPro right now," Hennessy says on the video, which had more than 6 million views by Friday.

"Global Degree" is about a group of 20-something young men who want to step foot in every country – 195 of them – before they turn 30. The camera-toting men are documenting their journey and posting in on YouTube, although they probably never expected to get footage like their most recent post.

On the Facebook page, they posted, “Don’t worry Argentina we still love you!!!” after the attempted robbery and to reassure the many Argentinian fans who came on the page to say how sorry they were that happened in their country.

Also on the page is another post that said the footage was turned over to the police, and the robber was arrested later in the day.

The Facebook page highlights beautiful moments the men are experiencing in their trip around the world.
