SANTO DOMINGO: A Russian woman has died in the Dominican Republic after hanging out of a car window while the driver recorded her on a mobile phone.
Natalia Borodina, 35, from Moscow, had taken off her bikini top and was playing up to the camera, hauling her top half out of the car window while a friend was driving.
The shocking video sees the mother-of-one letting her upper body hang out of the window of the moving car, before she hits a lamp post.
The video was recorded on a highway near Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic.
It was filmed by Borodina’s friend Ivanna Boirachuk, 32, who is believed to have been driving the car.
Borodina is wearing only her bikini bottoms when she decides to hang out of the window.
She playfully sticks her finger in her mouth and laughs at the camera, but within seconds, the video shows impact.
Russian media reports that Borodina was rushed to hospital and died of “serious injuries”.
“The woman was having fun demonstrating her naked breasts while her companion drove the car.”
It is understood Borodina’s son, aged about 8, was on holiday with her in the Dominican Republic.
Borodina is originally from Zlatoust, an industrial city in the Urals, but moved to regional capital Chelyabinsk, before relocating to Moscow.
Recently she had been working in Cannes, France, as an estate agent, selling properties to wealthy Russian buyers.
Friends said her family was aware of her appalling death.
