Japan earthquake: News team flee tsunami wave


A local Japanese news team have filmed the moment they attempted to run for safety, just before the tsunami hit Sendai.

The reporter and his team are filmed climbing the stairs of a house just as the tsunami hits and the local roads and paths are flooded.

Moments later debris including cars and houses float past. The team then attempt to rescue a woman trapped in a tree with a fire-hose.

Mike Wooldridge reports.
