SWEDEN - Cameras caught the moment a TV crew from 60 Minutes Australia was attacked by refugee migrants in Sweden.
A 60 Minutes cameraman and producer were injured in two separate attacks that involved being punched in the face, run over with a car and having a jar thrown at them.
In the video below you can see a disabled local witnessing the attack try to provide assistance by running over one of the attackers with his mobility scooter.
60 Minutes Reporter Liz Hayes said:
“I just knew, they wouldn’t hit me. I was glad, right then, that I was a woman. I felt they wouldn’t hit me because of that, and that might mean I could slow things down a bit. I’m pretty sure if I was one of the guys I probably would have been hit as well. We got out and that’s when our cameraman got run over by a car — a very deliberate act."
