Game dev Chiyomaru Shikura saves girl's life after earthquake

Chiyomaru Shikura, the CEO of Japanese game developer and publisher 5pb, has reportedly rescued an elementary schoolgirl who was trapped on the 14th floor of a building after the magnitude 8.9 earthquake hit Japan.

Chiyomaru later tweeted that everybody at 5pb was safe and had been sent home after the earthquake hit. However, he is now concerned about the safety of the people who live near the unstable nuclear reactors, saying he has "a bad feeling about this" and urging people to stay calm and evacuate from the area. (5pb, Chiyomaru Shikura, Culture, Industry)

I just heard about this earthquake. Im starting to get scared. There been too many natural disasters lately. Im afraid the world might really end in 2012.

Well it's not. The 8.9 was the strongest earthquake we've had in 140 years.. which means there was an even stronger earthquake in the past.

At any rate, good on this guy for risking his life to save that girl
