A horrific moment was caught on tape in Russia. The video showed a talented performer that was killed after being dragged by a horse at an acrobatic show in the country.
Stunt rider Anastasiya Maximova, 24, got her right foot trapped in the stirrups when she fell from her horse.
The panicking animal raced round and round the arena out of control while Anastasiya hung on unable to free herself. Spectators cried and tried to shield the eyes of their children from the distressing events.
The performer had fallen less than one minute into her appearance in a display of Cossack horsemanship at the arena in Abrau-Durso village in Russia’s Krasnodar region.
