Large chunks of snow wounded two people after falling off a mosque in northeastern Turkey Monday.

The incident happened on one of the busy streets in the town of Rize on the Black Sea.

Security camera footage showed snow that piled up on the roof of the mosque dropping on people down below, sending them running.

Some were briefly buried in the snow but were quickly rescued by witnesses.

Heavy snow and cold weather have been gripping most of Turkey for several days.
