A group of travellers managed to capture the moment when an enormous iceberg broke off of Svínafellsjökull glacier on film, reports Nútíminn.

“Oh my God! Oh Geez! Oh my!” the bystander gasps as he films the incident on his phone. “We just witnessed an incredible thing, an iceberg breaking off a glacier.”

The video, uploaded by Olen Adventures, shows how the giant iceberg rolls over and over in the water, causing the earth around the water to shake.

Climate change, shlimate shange.
