A video that shows a student carrying a classmate with a leg cast to safety during an earthquake has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times online alongside a claim it was filmed after a tremor rocked Taiwan in September. The video, however, has been shared in a false context. It shows an earthquake at a school in southwestern China's Sichuan province in June this year.
