In a flash, the fatehr rushed across the room and dove on the bed to safeguard his family. 

A mother in Taiwan’s Hualien city was sleeping in a bed with her young child on Tuesday night when a massive, 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck.

By the time that she awoke, began to register what was going on, and grabbed for her baby, her husband, who had been working on a computer on the other side of the room had rushed over and dove on top of her and their child to protect them with his body.

Just as the husband reaches the bed, the quake takes down the surveillance camera that was recording the frightening scene. While it’s not clear what happened to the family afterward, it’s likely that they are ok considering that this footage has made its way online.
