This is the moment an underground water pipe exploded, sending rocks and soil flying and damaging nearby cars and buildings.

The huge bulge of soil exploded into the air after a high-pressure water pipe burst in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev on Monday.

The spectacular explosion left six square-meter hole in the ground as muddy water flooded the streets. The moment was filmed by surveillance cameras.

Fortunately the pipe, which normally carries scalding water, was only filled with cold water when it exploded.

Officials said they have been carrying out tests, which is why the water had not been heated.
