CHINA (PIX11)- Talk about dedication, a young Chinese journalist left her own wedding to report on the earthquake that rocked the Sichuan province.

But that’s not all she did the report in her wedding dress!

Clad in a white gown, veil and even a corsage, Chen Ying grabbed a microphone and started reporting from the chaotic scene.

She was even able to interview witnesses running frantically from the wreckage.

Her bridesmaids and groom waited patiently for her return.

The 7.0 magnitude quake killed over 160 people and injured almost seven thousand.

Rescue teams and firefighters are continuing their search for survivors
