Video: Shocking CCTV footage shows ATM being robbed at gunpoint

Startling footage showing an ATM in a busy building being robbed at gunpoint is every bit as scary as it sounds.

The video is taken from a camera on top of the ATM and shows a worker kneeling in front of the cash machine, filling up the appliance with cash. Next, you hear the unmistakable sound of a gunshot and a flash as the bullet whizzes by on the bottom left of the picture.

The ATM worker returns fire and manages to escape the perilous situation during a short lull in the shooting. The gunmen then approach the discarded bag of money and claim it before fleeing the building with their stash.

Although the footage is a few months' old, it's only doing the rounds currently and, the word on the web is that it happened somewhere in South Africa. These are unconfirmed though, so if you do have any more information on the video please feel free to let us know.
