Following the horrific earthquakes in the Philippines on Monday afternoon, a shocking moment has been captured on video in which an aftershock dramatically shook the water from a high-rise rooftop swimming pool.

Tremors were felt in the capital of Manila, where incredible footage showed buildings swaying and water being thrown down the side of a high-rise building.

People couldn't believe their eyes, with many taking to social media to share their horror.

One person wrote: "Nightmares, for days".

Another said: "I'm glad I wasn't in that pool".

The 6.1 magnitude quake hit near the town of Bodega on the island of Luzon, about 60km northwest of Manila, disrupting air, rail and road transport and causing damage to buildings and infrastructure.

At least 52 aftershocks have been recorded.

Officials fear dozens could be trapped in the rubble of a collapsed commercial building.

At least 11 people have been killed by the massive earthquakes that hit the Southeast Asian nation.
