A dramatic video of yet another armoured van raid in French speaking Switzerland is going viral.

The attack was on Tuesday evening in the village of Daillens in canton Vaud.

Nearby residents, the Delacuisine family, were relaxing at home when they heard bangs. 23-year-old Gaëlle went outside to see the van on fire and the robbers attempting to break in. She called the police while her brothers filmed the raid on their phones.

It’s the third attack on a cash transporter this year in western Switzerland.

Gaëlle has been warned by the police she could be in danger following the publication of the video – but she says she’s not afraid. She says the robbers are now over the mountains and won’t return.
