Expensive desk could save your life

SEATTLE -- It is one pricy piece of office furniture that could possibly save your life.

A Washington company has designed a $10,000 desk that they say could protect you in an earthquake.

The desk may look ordinary but it is reinforced with steel that might save your life in a building collapse.

"It’s important to be prepared... understand the risks... and be prepared for those risks... but
there's no reason to change the way you live your life," said Robert Von Bereghy, president of Life Guard Structures.

The company says it also makes canopy bed frames, credenzas and desk areas that can hold up to a dozen people.
