    DUMB…yeah she might have kept him calm but not safe…there's a reason why they tell you to get under something solid…TO PROTECT YOURSELF…especially with the kid…irresponsible…best chance to survive if the building came down on top of them is to have been under that table…not sitting there.

    I think the title should be "Terrible mother puts son in danger", right? She doesn't even cover his head, get under the table, or move out of a building that would easily be rumble in seconds at a 9.0…..Just saying, but I don't really care either way because I hate children.

    Mom Boss Level over 9000!! Wow! What an awesome mom! KCCO!

  • Kurt

    She definitely KEPT CALM AND CHIVED ON! She just earned herself 2 KCCO shirts for that. Pro mom is a pro. Like a BOSS!

    Got to call BS on this one, the camera is shaking a lot and there is a lot of noise but the table ware does not move, the water in the glass on the table remains level and a sign hanging from strings in the background does not move. I'm not convinced this is really as bad as the camera movement makes it

    Guess the first thing I'd do with my kids in that kind of a shake is to run into the nearest open field.

    Just stand up there. Last one to lose balance is the winner.

    How did the sushi on the counter not jump up and smack them in the face? The mom was impressive, but the sushi… brain = boggled.

    I was there in that earthquake. Definitely crazy but KCCO along with most in Japan. Hope she got out of Sendai soon after cause that wave was coming 30 mins later.
