Shocking footage featuring a bank robbery in Brazil shows two getaway cars with hostages tied to the roofs. The ordeal started after a heavily armed gang of robbers invaded banks in Araçatuba, northwest of São Paulo.
The criminals apparently robbed every bank in the area. According to reports, they used these people as human shields, which left the city in total confusion and shock.
In addition to endangering the lives of these innocent people, they also put dynamite in the streets as a way to prevent an easy capture.
The police later revealed that the bombs were placed at 14 different places within the city, and they had sensors that would cause them to detonate as soon as anyone approached.
In fact, a 25-year-old man's legs were blown off by one of the bombs after he got too close while riding on his bike. His feet were amputated at the hospital.
