April 20 (UPI) -- Security cameras were recording at a Turkish pharmacy when a runaway tire bounced in through an open door and struck two men in the middle of a meeting.

Abdulkadir Erdeve, owner of the pharmacy in Adana province, said the video was recorded Friday by the security cameras outside and inside his business.

The video, which Erdeve shared with the Daily Sabah, shows a tire that fell off a moving vehicle rolling down a road at high speed, bouncing off a bicycle tied to a tree, and rolling in through the pharmacy's open front door.

The video from inside the business then shows the tire crash into Erdeve's desk, where he was sitting, and strike his friends Ibrahim Obaz and Volkan Ay, who were sitting in front of the desk.

"We were shocked. Patients come to our shop, but I don't remember a tire coming to our shop to buy medicine. This is the first time I experience such an incident in 35 years of my career," Erdeve told the Hurriyet Daily News.

He said the men were not seriously injured and were treated at the scene.

Erdeve said he and his friends do not plan to pursue a legal complaint over the incident.
