Just yesterday (April 18), Hualien, Taiwan was rocked by a 6.1 magnitude earthquake which shook the buildings and stalled the subway services temporarily in Taipei. It was reported that there were about 17 people who got injured during the largest quake that has hit the island this year.
Although people in Taiwan were shocked by the sudden quake, some netizens were touched by this group of nurses who went viral after CCTV footage of them were shared online. According to Sinchew, the video was taken at a home-based confinement centre in Taiwan when the earthquake occurred yesterday afternoon.
At first, it can be seen that the centre is shaking badly as several newborn babies’ cribs were rolling around. One of the three caretakers there was then seen grabbing on to the two cots nearest to her as she crouches down to calm the babies. Meawhile, the other two nurses who were crouching down behind and cuddling a newborn baby each, quickly came out to comfort the other infants who were undoubtedly disturbed by the violent shaking.
Instead of rushing to their own safety and ignoring the babies’ cries to protect themselves, the caretakers remained steadfast beside the babies’ cots to make sure that they are fine. They are also seen bending over the cribs so that they can use their bodies to physically shield the babies in case any debris falls on them. So dedicated, so selfless!
The video quickly caught netizens’ attention and they praised the caretakers for their noble actions. They said that the caretakers were like “angels” and that this was a very heartwarming incident. It looks like the babies and caretakers are fine after the earthquake too!
