Man Goes Viral for Saving PS5 During Earthquake in Morocco

Amidst the sad news of a severe earthquake in Morocco on Friday night (8th), a curious image went viral on social media: a shirtless man holding a PS5 in the middle of a street in Marrakech. Apparently, he was startled by the tremors and rushed out of his house, but not without taking the console with him.

Speculations and Reactions for Saving PS5

Although unidentified, comments, particularly on X, touched on various aspects of the scene: the instinct to try to save a cherished possession in such a situation and the likelihood of him playing at the time. Not to mention, of course, the large number of people saying they would do the same.

Unfortunately, however, according to a recent report from the Moroccan Ministry of Interior, the image that will be most remembered is not the gamer’s display of love. The number of people who have lost their lives has now exceeded a thousand, with over 1200 injured overnight.
