Brazilian Hostage Situation Brokered By News Anchor On Live TV

CNN reported that the unidentified man, who had allegedly taken his mother and sister hostage in Sao Paulo, told police he would only talk to Jose Luiz Datena, host of the crime-news show Brazil Urgente (“Urgent Brazil”). Since negotiations with the suspect had stalled up to that point, authorities agreed to his demand.

Datena then spent 20 minutes talking to the suspect while on the air, eventually convincing him to let the two women go unharmed. Police arrested the man shortly thereafter and took him to a hospital.
