TV Reporter Robbed During LIVE News Report!

Posted June 19th, 2014 @ 7:20am

This is crazy!

While in the middle of a live report on an attack, a news reporter herself became a victim! 

Heather Holmes, an Oakland news reporter for KTVU, was telling the story of a woman who was robbed and beaten until a stranger stepped in and saved her. During the report, Heather's purse was in one of the news vans on the scene. When she was finished reporting, she realized her purse had been stolen!

Instead of making herself out to be a victim, though, Holmes tweeted about the incident, putting the focus back on the real victim. What a great way to handle this situation!!
