David Beckham and his family were present during an earthquake in Bali, where at least 142 people were killed on Sunday evening.

A day before the magnitude-7 quake happened, the Beckham family were 60 miles away from the epicenter after their flight.

Beckham and his wife Victoria were in Indonesia holidaying with their children when the earthquake happened.

The children Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven, felt the earthquake but where unharmed.

A source told The Sun newspaper : “They certainly felt the earthquake.”

“The children, especially, were a little bit shaken but they are all fine. Their thoughts are obviously with the victims.”

After the disaster took place, 20,000 people became homeless across the islands of Lombok and Bali.

Tourists were taken off the island through ships.

Videos were displayed showing rescuers trying to help victims stuck in destroyed buildings, including a mosque that collapsed during evening prayers.

Occupants living in north Lombok evacuated their homes and moved to higher ground for safety.
