Raw video: New Zealand devastation one minute after the major earthquake

When Christchurch was hit by a magnitude 6.3 7.1 earthquake earlier this week, the devastation was immense – normally we get “up close” with events like this days later when the news shows footage, but this video shows the event just 60 seconds after it happened.

Watch for yourself to see what kind of damage the shaking earth can cause. Warning: there may be parts of this video not suitable for kids.
