In Rize, Turkey, passersby suddenly became witnesses to a freak accident when a massive amount of snow cascaded off a mosque yesterday. One might think snow falling from a roof in the middle of a city couldn't do much harm, but there was so much of it moving at a high speed that it buried and injured two people.

Snaps for the good Samaritans who rushed to help the two women caught in the snow. BBC reports that the ladies visited the hospital after the mini-avalanche, which was 10 times scarier than the underrated Chris O'Donnell mountain climbing/avalanche movie, Vertical Limit.
