“Oh… the ground is shaking,” says one of the hosts of a TV show being broadcast live on Canal 7 in the city of Mendoza. Unbeknownst to them, an 8.4 earthquake is hitting neighboring Chile, causing devastation and leaving at least 10 people dead.

As the show hosts try to cope with the situation and keep calm, you can tell that panic starts the set in as the tremors keep growing stronger.

In the end they make the right call and decide to leave the studio. “This is not stopping, guys. The spotlights are right on top of us so… I’m sorry, this is live… but we’re going to go because this is not stopping,” the hostess says before the transmission is interrupted.
