Witnessing an earthquake is surprising enough, even more so if you’re doing a live interview on camera and don’t exactly know how to react. 

Hiwa Jamal, a reporter for Rudaw TV news, based in Erbil, northeast Iraq, was interviewing Ismail Namiq, member of parliament for the Kurdish Gorran Movement, which is based in Sulaymaniyah, also northeast Iraq. 

At one point, a magnitude 7.3 earthquake strikes and the guest can be seen sweating and visibly upset. 

“I feel there’s an earthquake happening in Sulaymaniyah?” asks the presenter, according to a translation by The Guardian

“There is an earthquake here. I’m going to go outside, I’m sorry,” says Namiq, before leaving his seat.  

“There is an earthquake in Sulaymaniyah happening right now. I hope all Sulaymaniyah people are safe. There is also an earthquake in Erbil. I hope my guest is safe,” says Jamal.

“There is also an earthquake here, I can feel it. It’s too strong, without a doubt.”

Then, he interrupts the live broadcast, saying they’ll have to go outside for their own safety 

The earthquake struck near the Iran-Iraq border region, killing at least 300 people and injuring almost 6,000, according to The Associated Press.
