    In a shocking moment, a news anchor at a local TV station was broadcasting live on Tuesday night when a 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit Peru, causing reporter Alvina Ruiz to go off-script.

    Ruiz felt the jolt of a nearby earthquake in the middle of an interview but maintained a sense of calm as the building shook.

    “Let’s try to stay calm. Emergency backpack at hand. Try to stay calm. This happens,” visibly concerned Ruiz told viewers as the quake shook Peru’s capital.

    The seismological center of the Peruvian Institute of Geophysics informed that the earthquake’s epicentre was in Mala, a district located 86 km south of Lima.

    No injuries were reported.
