TV anchors dive under desk during LA earthquake

quak2.jpg

Be if for us to poke fun in the face of natural disaster, never mind the normally consummate professionalism of US news anchors, but this following clip is quite literally ground-breaking comedy.

A pair of live TV news presenters are caught on camera the exact moment today's 4.4 tremor struck Los Angeles.

Almost hitting the ground as quick as the quake itself at 6.26am local time, the duo dive under their desk at incredible speeds, unearthing seconds later to reassure viewers of local news channel KTLA-TV that the quake has passed.

Stop, drop, and roll on the floor laughing - the clip is below.
