    A cyclist uses his GoPro to record the terrifying moment he was mugged at gunpoint. Project manager Malcolm Fox, from Cape Town, South Africa, switched on the helmet-mounted camera only moments before taking a wrong-turn into an informal settlement. The thieves stole his bicycle, cellphone and car keys and sunglasses, before instructing him to walk away - WITHOUT realising the entire robbery had been filmed. The 36-year-old handed the footage to police, who were able to arrest two of the suspects the following day, with the third man tracked down two days later. And while officers were able to recover his phone and bike, the South African was relieved to walk away with his life.
