EL PASO, Texas (NewsNation Now) — An Arizona family was robbed at gunpoint while vacationing in Mexico this week, according to NewsNation affiliate Border Report.

The robbery happened Tuesday on a highway leading to the town of Caborca, near the resort of Puerto Peñasco, Sonora. Men with an AK-47 assault rifle took a four-door Toyota Tundra, a 20-foot flatbed trailer, at least one all-terrain vehicle, and the cellphones of the Davis family of Mesa, Arizona.

The family of four was left in the middle of the road by the men in a gray sedan who stopped their vehicle. The family had to walk to a nearby farm where they asked the locals for help, El Diario de Sonora reported.

No one was injured, but a recording of the aftermath that Natalie Lines Davis posted on Facebook shows her daughter’s reaction to the traumatic event. The family can be heard in the background saying, “we’re alive.”

The family later found safe harbor in Puerto Peñasco.
