Disturbing video has emerged of the horrific moment a bus driver plowed into several teenage Austrian swimmers attending the European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan. 

The footage shows the bus swerving around a roundabout before hitting three 15-year-old synchronized swimmers. 

The Telegraph reported:

Vanessa Sahinovic, 15, suffered multiple fractures in the collision and is currently in a medically induced coma, although she is described as being "not in an acute life-threatening situation".

"[She] was flown to Vienna where she was operated on all night," the Austrian Olympic Committee (AOC) said in a statement. "Apart from her hip region and thigh, her spine has also been affected," it said.

"Sahinovic is at the moment in an artificial deep sleep and will undergo more operations in the coming days."

Teammate Luna Pajer, who was also flown back, broke her arm and will be released from hospital soon while Verena Breit received treatment in Baku and returned to the team.

The police have launched an investigation into the accident.

The European Games officially opened Friday and runs until June 28.
