CCTV footage showing a moment of terror for a mother and her two children is going viral. The mother and her children were caught right in the middle of the 5.8-magnitude earthquake that shook Korea this past Monday evening.

The mother and her two kids were in the middle of a nighttime stroll when suddenly, the earthquake's violent tremors stopped them in their tracks. The mother, sensing danger, immediately grabs her children and brings them into her embrace. She continues to hug them tightly, nearly losing her balance but managing to stay upright. 


Though it is a given that any mother would do the same for her children, this woman's maternal instinct, which shows that she clearly values her children's lives over her own, is a moment that has touched many people's hearts.

    IT's a nice video and probably getting attention because although it's the right thing to do usually what's on film or in the news is shocking stories of what mothers shouldn't do to their kids so seeing warmth and some normal maternal love makes everyone feel thankful and happy I guess :)

    its so funny reading all comment below. such 'every mother are like that' just be thankful if your mother kind of person. but some people are not really grateful to have such protective mother. so yeay, dont blame them for giving such opinion that not all mother are wonder woman. you just never know what they face before for being such unlucky child

    lol do you guys just watch the video only then comment however you want? Yes, we all know most mothers would do this exact same thing, just like the article says. We don't care about your opinions if you don't have the time to just read.

    I think that's a normal reaction not some super mother instinct...

    I read the article and I just meant that this story is not worthy enough to write an article about but that's my opinion xD This is not something only a mother with mother instinct would do, For example many man would also grab the woman he loves like that or an older sibling would also take care of the younger ones like that

    Well it's a given that any sane mother would protect her children. Not sure if this was worth an article, but TBH, after hearing news of child abuse & neglect all the time, this is a breath of fresh air. Not sure if the emotional background music was needed lol, this wasn't a K-Drama moment.
