A video of a daring armed robbery staged in broad daylight, which is comparable to scenes from a movie, has gone viral.

The video clip, taken in South Africa, captures two armed gangsters dragging a bag of unknown content to their getaway car.

But as they struggle to load their loot into the car, a G4S truck sends them scampering for safety as its attempts to ram the escape vehicle.

The truck however misses it target and getaway car speeds away with the two armed gangsters in hot pursuit. All this time their loot is laying on the tarmac.

The car then swings around and drives away truck from the spot where the bag is laying on the road.

A gunman emerges from the front seat of the getaway car and takes aim at the fleeing G4S truck as his accomplices load their load into the car which then speeds away.
