Mexico Earthquake Interrupts Anniversary Interview of 1985 Quake Victim

Telemundo 39 reporter Norma Garcia was in Mexico City Tuesday interviewing a survivor of the catastrophic 1985 earthquake, where at least 5,000 people die, on its anniversary when a 7.1 magnitude temblor rocked the capital city.

Towards the end of the interview, the siren of a seismic alert began to ring.

Garcia, photographer Daniel Manrique and the woman being interviewed, Susana Irma Laguna Aburto, struggled to remain on their feet as they tried to move from the garden where they were shooting to a safer area.

In Manrique's video, buildings can be seen moving, power lines swaying and cars jolting from side to side.

None of the people in the video were injured in the quake.
