A woman accidentally records the military coup in Burma and goes viral

Published on

A physical education instructor from the Burmese capital, Naypyidaw, was recording her aerobic dance routine when she accidentally caught a convoy of military vehicles heading towards the country’s parliament for a coup. Upon being published on the network, the video went viral.

In the recording, which has already collected millions views on Twitter, you can see how Khing Hnin Wai practices her energetic movements accompanied by loud music in the background at the Burmese Government headquarters. The woman didn’t stop once despite the disturbing movements that suddenly began to occur behind her.

“Before knowing this news in the morning, I was doing the usual and I was recording a video for a competition,” said the woman in the publication of her Facebook account.

“As I danced, the helicopters went around, the vehicles went vroom-vroom. With all those weapons, I thought someone was pointing at me from a distance. The police officers just smiled and looked at me,” the message continues.

The video quickly went viral and spread through the network, receiving a wave of reactions. Some users even questioned the authenticity of the recording. However, in her next post, Khing Hnin Wai uploaded a series of similar videos shot at the same location on different dates to prove that this is not a staging.

On February 1, the Burmese military, who had ruled the Asian country for decades, staged the military coup, decreeing a state of emergency for a year.

The Burmese president, Win Myint, and the State Councilor and 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi, were arrested, including several legislators, regional officials and leaders of the National League for Democracy (NLD, ruling party).
