One woman at the beach is heard screaming, “If we die, I love you.”

A freak storm hit a Siberian beach on Saturday, and footage of the golf-ball-sized hail falling from the sky is incredibly frightening to watch.

In the Siberian Times footage, bathers at Ob River in Novosibirsk are first heard laughing as light rain and wind appear to ruin their day at the beach.

Hailstorms of this intensity are rare in Siberia in summer. This is how peaceful the Ob river usually looks.
