    WARNING: The video above features graphic imagery.

    Graphic new video shows how life changed in an instant for Nepalis after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck last Saturday.

    The security camera video of a street in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, starts showing life on a typical Saturday. About 44 seconds in, the shaking begins. The panic sets in and people are seen running in an attempt to take shelter. 

    A major building collapses and a dust cloud swallows the tragic scene. 

    The death toll has surpassed 6,800 and continues to rise as search and rescue teams find more bodies under the endless piles of rubble. More than 14,000 people have been injured.

    The initial earthquake struck around noon on Saturday April 25 about 80 km northwest of the capital Kathmandu. 

    Once the tremblor stops, people start helping those stricken.
