Two women - a doctor and a nurse - were injured in southern Turkey on Wednesday when the ground literally swallowed them up.

The incident occurred in the province of Diyarbakir.

The footage, released by security sources, shows them disappearing in a cloud of dirt after the pavement on which they were walking collapsed. Bystanders rushed to help and the women were brought to safety.
