This footage shows the moment a water pipe in Ukraine spontaneously explodes.

The video, which lasts around 30 seconds, shows what appears to be a parking lot. Out of nowhere, the pavement begins to bubble up and suddenly explodes — sending water and mud skyrocketing into the air, covering nearby vehicles and flooding down streets in a brown, muddy river. City residents can be seen looking on in astonishment and disgust.

The explosion reportedly occurred in Kiev, Ukraine due to the pipe having endured too much pressure, according to the YouTuber who uploaded the footage.
