A TERRIFIED Brit mum was forced to flee her hotel room with her baby daughter as an earthquake hit Crete.
Sofia Meadowcroft, 24, from Hornby, Cumbria, says the whole room started to shake as a huge 6.0 quake hit the Greek island - killing a dad-of-two.
Brit tourists were evacuated from resorts and islanders ran out into the streets when the quake shook their homes at 9.17am local time.
Sofia is staying at a hotel near Heraklion and says she is thankful that her one-year-old daughter Ayla was strapped into her pram when the giant tremor happened.
She told The Sun Online: "It felt like a train outside our room and everything started shaking.
"The bed's headboard was banging against the wall, then the bed moved and my perfume bottle fell onto the ground and smashed.
"Luckily my daughter was in the pram. She could have been thrown onto the floor if she wasn't.
"I was really scared at first I didn't know what was going on.
