This is the tragic moment two young girls are swept away in a fast-flowing river before the horrified eyes of their friends while posing for a picture.

The dramatic incident took place in the capital city of Dushanbe in western Tajikistan and was shockingly captured on the smartphone of one of the friends.

The footage shows a young woman who was not named but who was reportedly age 19 dressed in green sitting on the banks of the Surkhob river.

She wanted her friend to take a photo with the river in the background but slipped on the wet surface and fell into the river.

Her 15-year-old relative tried saving her but also fell in the water.

The stream was so fast that within a few seconds the women were quite far from the rest of their friends and it was impossible for them to be rescued without also putting their own lives at risk.

Representatives of the local emergency team only managed to locate the dead bodies of the two teenagers later the next day.

Netizen ‘xojaeva91’ said: "Everything on that photo shows that this was very ill-advised. They lost their lives so that they could show off in front of a camera. In addition, instead of shouting they probably could have pulled their friend back if they had reacted more quickly. But then it was too late."

And user ‘uasmina13102007’ added: "Very sad. God, help their parents, it is awful to have to get over such death and suffering."
