A 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, aged 30, was found dead at the base of an apartment block in St Petersburg on the night of July 5 during what neighbors described as a wild party.
Witnesses 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.
Police were called, and when they arrived the revelers allegedly threw a mop out of the windows at them.
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.
Two other men were in the flat when the fall happened, but are not thought to have been involved.
A murder investigation has been launched.

Why Governor Fayemi, El-Rufai And Emir Sanusi Are Attending WEF In South Africa Despite FG’s Boycott —- Min. Of Foreign Affairs
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, on Thursday, said that governors already attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) in South Africa is not an affront to the decision of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
According to him, those governors and other individuals were already in South Africa before a decision was reached for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to boycott the WEF due to xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
The Kano Emirate Council had shared the photographs of Fayemi, alongside the Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai; and the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi, at Africa in the World conference holding in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Briefing State House correspondents in Abuja, he also pointed out that the WEF is an international function, which was not organized by South Africa.
“The forum started a long time ago and the governors were already there before our decision was taken”, he said.
According to him, Nigeria only stated a position that its top officials would not be in Capetown to register its protest against the xenophobic attacks.
Some of the Nigerian governors who have gone ahead to attend the World Economic Forum included the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, and Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, and Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State.
Other Nigerians participating at the forum include a former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili.
