Taiwan earthquake: Badminton players flee as sport centre collapses


This is the dramatic moment the ceiling of a badminton court collapsed on top of players during an earthquake in Taiwan on Sunday.

Around two dozen people were playing at the Bade Sports Center in Taoyuan City – around 20 miles west of capital Taipei – shortly before 3pm when the quake hit.

Footage shows how the ceiling – which was only renovated in recent days – collapsed and sent players fleeing for their lives, leaving one man lightly injured. 

It happened as Taiwan was hit by a magnitude 6.8 tremor centered near the town of Chishang, in the south of the island, which killed one person and injured nine.
