Shocking footage has emerged of the moment a toddler accidentally wandered into the middle of an armed robbery.
The child had briefly escaped the attention of her mum and made her way through an open shop door as a man held the store up at gunpoint, reports The Mirror.
The CCTV footage – from a chemists in the Vila Regina District of Goiania in Brazil – shows the gunman ordering staff and customers at the pharmacy to get on the ground as he robs them before breaking into the till.
Suddenly, a little girl can be seen wandering into the store, toddling just a few feet away from the armed robber.
Initially, he ignores her, but when the child’s mother also walks straight in looking for her, the gunman orders both the terrified mum and daughter to move to a corner of the shop with the other petrified customers.
No one was injured in the incident and police are investigating but are yet to identify the man.
That girl’s mother must’ve been bloody terrified.
