A teenager is being celebrated for keeping a cool head during a 6.0-magnitude earthquake. The quake struck near Changning County in southwest China's Sichuan Province on Monday, causing a strong tremor in Zunyi City. When Gu Xinyao, 13, realized other students were standing in the hallway of her school's dorm, she immediately sprang into action. She asked them not to panic and directed them outside the building. Her dorm is reportedly on the fifth floor, and houses nearly 100 students.
