On Saturday, a quiet, relaxing day at the Ob River in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, Russia, was interrupted when a violent thunderstorm suddenly unleashed rain, powerful winds and hailstones the size of golf balls on beachgoers.
The video footage of the event looks like a scene from the end of days.
One moment, people are enjoying the perfectly sunny day, and the next, they are running for their lives in fear of being killed by the hail.
According to The Siberian Times, a woman’s voice can be heard in the video saying “if we die, I love you.” There were some children who were crying and taking shelter beneath trees.
“It was like being hit by raining bullets from the sky,” said one witness.
