The earthquake that hit Mexico on Tuesday was captured on camera during a live television-news broadcast.
The anchor at Foro TV was in the middle of a segment with his reporter from the field, when the earthquake warning sirens began to wail.
The broadcaster Enrique Campos told viewers in Spanish:

"Right now that's the earthquake alarm going off, this is not a drill. We're feeling an earthquake now, the floor is moving. You all already know what you have to do now: Stay calm, and evacuate immediately. I'm going to get up and evacuate."
A blaring warning siren was heard in the background when the broadcaster was about to leave the studio.
The earthquake damaged buildings and killed at least 223  people have died, according to government officials. The death toll is expected to rise, the Associated Press reported.
The nation's capital bore the brunt of the deaths and damage in Tuesday's quake, but it has also been the scene of dramatic rescues.
