CCTV footage shows the terrifying moment that a huge slab of compact snow and ice fell from a mosque roof in the Turkish city of Rize, burying pedestrians below.

Locals can been seen rushing to dig for survivors with their bare hands.

Two were taken to hospital with unknown injuries whilst the others were rescued safely by the good sanitarians.
