Chen Ying is one dedicated reporter. After a massive, deadly earthquake rocked China’s Sichuan province Saturday morning, she ditched her plans in order to report from the scene — plans that included her own wedding.

The website Shanghaiist noted Chen was actually in her gown, on her way to her nuptials when the quake struck. So instead, she jumped into reporter mode and went to work — veil and all.

An image of Chen went viral on a Chinese microblogging website, according to the Huffington Post. At least 179 people were killed in the quake and 6,700 injured.
