A Russian holiday-goer has been killed after hanging out of the window of a moving car while topless.

The horror accident occurred when 35-year-old mum Natalia Borodina collided with an object - reportedly a lamppost - while she and a friend were driving along a highway near Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic.

Her friend was believed to be driving at the time, and filmed the entire incident on her smartphone. In the shocking footage, Ms Borodina is seen with her torso hanging completely out of the passenger side window.
