A five-month-old baby has died in what can be called the most horrifying way ever in Russia.

The child died after a man reportedly jumped from the 17th floor of a building and landed on its stroller.

The tragedy, which was captured on CCTV, happened on Thursday in the south-western city of Voronezh.

Footage shows a mother leaving an apartment block pushing a pram with her child inside.

She turns onto the street and is seen walking along the pavement.

She then turns to the left to cross a road, pushing the pram out in front of her, when a man falls from above and onto the street.

The terrified mother is then seen rushing to her child while the man remains motionless on the tarmac.

The distraught woman can be seen picking the baby up and holding it in her hands while reportedly crying to people nearby for help.
