Mass snowball fight in Madrid after snowfall

Video posted on social media showed dozens of people, some wearing face masks, pelting each other with snowballs as one person skied down in the middle of the road.

Storm Filomena caused travel chaos across the country, blanketing Madrid in the heaviest snowfall in decades and forcing authorities to mobilize troops to rescue trapped motorists.

Rescue services reached 1,500 people trapped in cars, while skiers glided down Gran Via, normally one of the busiest streets in the capital.
