This was the moment a group of tourists witnessed the Ebecco volcano suddenly erupting in Kuril islands, Russia, on September 28.
Footage shows a group of tourists enthusiastically observing a giant cloud of ashes coming out of the crater and rising up into the sky.
A couple can be seen standing extremely close to the crater. According to the filmer, they miraculously escaped death. She said: ”We were watching the volcano activity for 2 hours and went down the path leading to the acid lake.” ”Luckily, we didn’t go the end and returned back very soon. If we stayed there even a minute more, we’d be in the epicenter of the eruption. ”We suddenly heard a terrifying sound coming out of the crater and then Ebecco ‘shot’ a huge column of ashes.”Splintered volcanic bombs kept on landing near us! I still can’t believe we were that fortunate to leave the crater on time and observe such rare natural phenomenon.”
