Beckhams caught up in terrifying quake which left at least 142 dead
David and Victoria Beckham were caught up in the terrifying earthquake that hit Indonesia on Sunday night, it was reported.
The couple and their four kids are believed to be on holiday in Bali when the 7.0 magnitude quake struck on the neighbouring island of Lombok.
David, 43, Victoria, 44, and children Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven, landed on the paradise island on Saturday, according to the Sun.
The family were around 60 miles from the epicentre when the earthquake hit, leaving at least 142 people dead.
The newspaper quoted a source as saying: "They certainly felt the earthquake.
"The children, especially, were a little bit shaken but they are all fine. Their thoughts are obviously with the victims."
A number of celebrities were caught up in the weekend’s terror.
Take That star Gary Barlow posted a message on Twitter assuring fans that he was fine after the earthquake.
The singer has been on holiday in Bali.
"Thank you for your concern – we’re all fine – a bit shaken up," he said.
Model and television presenter Chrissy Teigen has been caught up in an earthquake while holidaying with her family on the Indonesian island of Bali.
Teigen, 32, posted a series of brief updates on her Twitter profile as the US Geological Survey announced that a magnitude-seven quake has struck Lombok island, which lies about about 25 miles east of Bali.
The Lip Sync Battle host initially wrote: "Oh my god. Bali. Trembling. So long.", before adding "Phewwwwww", indicating that the tremors had stopped.
Teigen is with her husband – singer John Legend – and their two young children Luna and Miles.
The former Sports Illustrated cover star revealed the house in which they are staying is elevated from the ground, which added to the terrifying experience.
Teigen wrote: "Oh man. We are on stilts. It felt like a ride. 15 solid seconds of ‘holy shit this is happening.
"I very calmly walked outside saying clutching baby saying ‘I’m naked. I’m naked. I’m naked’. Like a naked zombie."
Teigen then confirmed that aftershocks from the quake had started to hit the area.
She wrote: "I’m either still trembling or these little quakes won’t stop. I’m trying to be normal here!".
Panicked holidaymakers and locals rushed into the streets amid fears buildings would collapse.
Three people, including a child, died in the earthquake.
Other Brits contacted Mirror Online to tell of their ordeal.
Cally Charles, from Devon, said that her partner Ashley Knight, 23, had popped the question just five minutes before it happened.
But romance quickly turned to terror as the magnitude 7 quake struck.
The couple were in a lift at their hotel in the coastal resort of Jimbaran when the quake struck, and Cally described it as "the scariest moment of my life".
But reflecting back on what happened, the 23-year-old quipped: "Five minutes before the earthquake my boyfriend proposed on the beach!
"He’s one of a kind he made the earth move for me!"
She said: "The whole lift was shaking!
"We got to the top level of our hotel (rooftop bar) people were holding onto tables and chairs.
"We ran down the stairs to the lobby where loads of people were stood outside. It was the scariest moment of my life!!"
Writing to Mirror Online from the town of Ubud in Bali, Kate Dunlop said people had started to run out into the street.
She wrote: "It was scary seeing everyone flee like that. In the street, we could still feel the earth trembling under our feet.
"As I type, we are now experiencing a little aftershock."
Tourist Hannah Small, from Bournemouth, told Mirror Online: "We are saying in Ubud, our whole hotel was shaking and parts of the ceiling and walls were falling down. It was awful, we rushed from the third floor to reach safety!"
Terrified tourists also shared their experiences on social media.
Teresa Palmer posted on Twitter: "Woah! Anyone else feel that earthquake in Bali? Hope everyone is okay. Staying in a treehouse and we were SWAYING!"
And Natasha Hussain wrote: "Earthquake in Bali for one minute, at around 7:45pm local time. We were in the car, road was jammed. Everyone ran out of their cars to the side of the road. Nervous atmosphere."
Another Bali resident posted: "Back in the house now. That was an attention getter. Strongest quake we’ve felt in the 13 years we’ve been here. Much stronger than the last one in Lombok that we felt in Bali Hope everyone in Lombok is safe."
The United States Geological Survey has said it was a 7-magnitude quake which struck at Indonesia’s Lombok island, sending tremors across the region.
The tsunami warning issued in the aftermath covers North Lombok, East and North Bali, the north side of East Java, Southeast Madura, South Kalimantan, and South Sulawesi.
