Shocking video footage has emerged showing a journalist in El Salvador interviewing a dying man on live TV.

According to The Sun the man was struck by a truck on a motorway.

News footage shows images of a truck with a shattered windscreen before cutting to a man lying on the side of the road groaning in pain.

The reporter from TVO Noticias thrusts a microphone in his face questioning him about what happened.

"They hit me and I'm hurting," the injured man said.

Instead of offering assistance the reporter questions the man over whether or not he'd seen the truck coming.

He eventually asks if the man would like to go to the hospital, but not before asking where he was going before being hit.

It is believed the man later died due to his injuries.
