    I saw this amazing video where there's a father holding a small child while a house burns nearby. Instead of throwing the child into the father, the father holds the child. I think he should get a Father of the Year award!

    I know it was a big earthquake and all… but it's really not that hard to keep a camera still.

    It is so astonishing how calm you can be around your children when an emergency hits. Good for her!

    Fake! Nothing falling off the self’s. the flags gaining from the roof not moving. BIG FAT FAKE.

    It's not fake. You can see it best around 23 seconds. There you can see things rolling around on the table and the multiple wall decorations shift significantly, nearly to parallel to the ground..

    Am I the only one that thinks she should have brought that kid to some cover like a door frame rather then sitting in the middle of the restaurant? I mean yes she stayed calm which is more then most people would do but, what if the building collapsed? I would at least have been using my body as a shield for falling items or debris. I'm not trying to bash her or anything I mean some people just don't know what to do in an earthquake, but for anyone thats reading this, thats in a earthquake prone area, if you feel one coming on and you're in a building, get next to a structural support or doorway. At the very least you'll have a support structure over you're head.

    Wow, mom's got nerves of steel. Awesome job keeping cool under pressure. The kid really responded well to how relaxed she was. Parenting, like a boss!
