& # 39; The video ran for a long time, maybe two hours from 8 am & # 39; in the morning until the store staff arrived at about 10 o'clock. Some people were shocked, but others just stopped and watched, & he said.
Another witness reported that he saw the video at 1:00 am & night.
Tanya Lee, 29, watched the video while taking her 7-year-old son to breakfast.
& # 39; I looked again because I just couldn't believe what I saw & # 39 ;, Lee told NZ Herald.
