A 39-year-old woman has been killed after falling from the ninth floor of a block of flats in Russia while having sex, but her partner survived after landing on top of her.
The woman was found dead at the base of an apartment block in St Petersburg on the night of July 5 during what witnesses described as a wild party.
Neighbors said they saw a television thrown from the window of the flat, after which the woman and her 29-year-old lover plunged to the ground below.
The woman landed head-first on the asphalt and died instantly, local media reported, but the man survived after his fall was broken by her body and nearby bushes.
Witnesses told local media that the partially clothed man then got up and went back to rejoin the party.
Initial reports suggested the woman had been killed by the falling TV, but images from the scene clearly show her naked from the waist down. After interviewing witnesses, investigators concluded that the couple were having sex on a windowsill when they fell.
