Japanese Man Finds Out What Happens When You’re In A Bath During A Major Quake

A man in Osaki, Japan, was soaking up some suds on Saturday when a major earthquake struck, turning his relaxing bath into a few moments of sheer terror.

Footage from the tub, above, shows water sloshing around the unnamed man as if he were in rough seas … except he was in his own home during the quake, which was centered off the coast and had a 7.3 magnitude

“It’s really shaking,” he says in Japanese in the video clip, according to Newsflare. “This is insane!” 

The quake led to a landslide, building damage and power outages. At least 140 people were injured, including three seriously, but no deaths were reported, per AP.

One expert told The Japan Times that Saturday’s earthquake was an aftershock of the devastating 9.1 magnitude quake that struck on March 11, 2011, which led to a tsunami, some 16,000 deaths, widespread damage and the Fukushima nuclear disaster
