Watch! A Pakistani news anchor keeps calm even as earthquake shakes the entire studio
Afghanistan, Pakistan and India were jolted by a massive earthquake Tuesday night. The magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck northern Afghanistan, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre. At least two people died in the eastern part of the country, while one child was dead in Pakistan. Terrifying videos showing the enormity of the quake are now emerging.
Footage of a local TV channel in Peshawar doing the rounds on social media shows the news anchor maintaining composure even as the quake shakes the entire studio. In the video, the news anchor of Mahshriq TV, a local Pashto TV channel, in Peshawar, Pakistan can be seen holding steady and being calm as the quake strikes, shaking the studio, the camera and other equipment.
The video shows how massive the quake was as TV screens behind him in the newsroom can also be seen shaking vigorously as the staff moves out.
People in Afghanistan and Pakistan have been sharing more such videos of the quake where buildings and lamp posts can be seen shaking.
