Water splashed onto car windscreen freezes within seconds in northern China

Incredible footage captures water freezing within seconds of splashing onto the windscreen of a car in northern China.

The dashcam video, filmed in the city of Shenyang in Liaoning Province, shows a vehicle driving through a puddle, throwing water onto the car behind it.

The water on the windscreen turns into ice immediately, blocking the motorist's view.

According to local reports the terrified motorist managed to stop his car safely, and then proceeded to scrape the ice off with a bank card - a task that took him a full 15 minutes.

See what happens in the video above.
