Spare a thought for this woman. She was walking along a road in Israel when she was literally blown over by strong winds.

Despite her attempts to fight the extreme weather, the forces of nature won and the woman was left flat on her face.

Luckily, some passers-by quickly ran to help her back on her feet but not before the incident was captured on camera.


It appears that someone in a nearby café decided to film the woman’s struggle on their mobile phone rather than actually help her. The woman is not believed to have been injured in the fall.

The incident happened in the city of Ramat Gan in Tel Aviv. The strong winds were followed by a storm in which heavy rains battered the shores of the city.

The storm could peak today but is expected to be lighter than one that hit the area back in December 2013.

Around 12 to 24 hours of snowfall is also expected in Jerusalem, with snow crews on alert and snow ploughs at the ready.
