Live-steaming online salesman runs for cover when Taiwan quake hits

This is the moment an online salesman live streaming on the internet was forced to dive for cover when an earthquake struck Taiwan late on Tuesday.

In the video, partway through the man's piece to camera - in which he is touting bags and other items - the camera begins to rapidly shake due to the tremors. He then drops down to the floor and the picture goes black while the man and a woman continue a conversation.

The man and woman were both reportedly safe.

The shallow magnitude 6.4 quake struck eastern Taiwan’s Hualien county.

The quake has left at least four people dead, 145 missing and 200 injured, according to reports.
