UPDATE: 1.16pm: 

TWO Sydney university student travelling from Cairns to Sydney have taken a corner too fast near Rockhampton, rolling their motorhome.

But the pair, Kyson Gui and Siria Ma, defied the odds when their motorhome remained almost completely intact, with no broken windows and only a couple of scratches to the side.

There was also minor damage to the awning on its side.

But the university students, who moved to Australia from China to study about two years ago, escaped unscathed.

They crawled out the window of the driver's door before a passer-by helped pull them out of the motorhome.

Three police officers directed traffic and one fire unit mopped up the scene.

 

Stunning footage posted to Twitter shows the motorhome being tipped back upright.
