The incident was recorded on the female driver’s dashcam as she was driving through the city in the south of the country. While listening to the Latvian pop group Brainstorm on her car radio, the lyrics “My guardian angel is mine” can be heard, just as she encounters the attacker, who is pointing a gun at her.
Without showing any sign of panic, the woman just says “is he crazy?” in Russian, as she briefly slows down, but soon continues on her journey.
