How Nurses in a Neo-natal Unit Reacted to an Earthquake
Date Posted: 22/Nov/2017
When the hospital started to shake, their first instinct might have been to run away to get outside. 
 
But CCTV shows how they rushed to secure the cots, holding them together to try and protect them.
 
They then pick up the babies and put them in a special harness, to take them outside safely.  
‘I love how they don’t waste time protecting those children. Nurses are real life superheroes,’ one user commented on Reddit. 
 
Another added: ‘Exactly. i Don’t care if it’s part of their job. No hesitation whatsoever to protect the babies. 
 
‘I mean, it doesn’t matter what you do for a living – self-preservation will still kick in. 
 
These nurses just kicked that concept out of the window. Hats off to people like them. Not sure I’d be able to do that if we switched places.’
