Gamer livestreams New Zealand earthquake while pla

See the moment the Wellington man got caught in the 7.8 magnitude earthquake while playing World Of Warcraft.

A Kiwi gamer has gone viral after he accidentally livestreamed the moment the New Zealand earthquakes hit the city of Wellington.

And yes, he does carry on playing.

The 26-year-old gamer said of the event: "I am fine after the 'quake, was a little excited by it, also the the guys that were on the stream were just having some banter and there is no hard feelings at all, we are all still mates. 

He added: "I did hit my knee pretty hard and got some gnarly cat scratches when trying to catch my cats to evacuate for the tsunami warnings."

We suppose all's well that ends well, but a 7.8 magnitude is definitely no joke.
