A 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei on April 3, resulting in the deaths of nine people and injuring over a thousand. The quake caused significant damage to numerous buildings and triggered tsunami warnings that reached as far as Japan and the Philippines. Intense footage captured on social media showcases buildings shaking, bridges swaying, and individuals desperately seeking shelter.

Amongst these frightening scenes, two videos have gained attention on social media. One depicts a man struggling in a rooftop swimming pool amid powerful waves caused by the tremor. Despite the perilous circumstances, the man remains composed and stays in place. Another video shows water from a rooftop swimming pool cascading down a skyscraper like a waterfall.

Reports from news agencies state that this earthquake is the most powerful to hit Taiwan in 25 years, with officials cautioning about potential aftershocks in the days to come.
