  • At 8:38 timestamp, we see a reporter standing in the middle of the road while a cameraperson records her.

  • At 8:53 timestamp, we see a white Omni car approaching her, opening the door and pulling her inside the car.

  • The car takes off, and the cameraperson runs after the vehicle; all this matches the 'kidnapping' scene seen in the viral video.

  • We also noticed that the car and the attires worn by the reporter and cameraperson match the ones seen in the viral clip.

(Note: Swipe to see all the comparison.)

  • Both the scene match but are from different angles.
