“It was impossible to understand at the time what was happening, if it was a homeless person passing by. But after what happened, we cut the image,” said CNN’s Rafael Colombo later on, who was also on air when the incident took place. “He threatened and she handed over a cell phone, but he knew she had two, because she has a private and a corporate one.”
