World Cup Tragedy As Teen 'Falls To His Death From Moscow Balcony’
A teenager fell to his death from a Moscow balcony and landed on a group of Argentine fans, according to accounts in Russia.
The Sun have reported that the young man fell from a sixth-floor window before landing on a group of World Cup fans who were beneath him.
It is believed that two of the football fans were hurt, one with serious neck injuries and the other with a wound to the leg. Three others were knocked to the ground by the falling man.
An eye-witness said: "They were toppled like bowling pins."
The fans were walking back to their hostel when the man 'fell right on top of them' following Argentina's 1-1 draw with Iceland yesterday.
It is claimed that locals had seen the young man standing on the ledge of the balcony before the accident.
He 'swore and made rude gestures', it was reported.
Another witness said: "The moment the group of fans walked under the window, he lost his balance and fell."
Paramedics rushed the injured fans and the teenager to hospital but he died in intensive care, according to reports.

The Argentines had 'multiple injuries' but there is hope that they will be released from hospital before their country's next World Cup game.
The news comes after Kyrgyzstan-born Anarbek Uulu, 28, drove into pedestrians near Moscow's Red Square last night.
The vehicle drove for about 10 metres along the pavement, bowling over pedestrians, with some of them being carried along on the bonnet of the car, according to The Sun.
The taxi came to a partial halt after hitting a traffic sign. Uulu then ran away from the car, but was tackled by pedestrians.
He told police he fled because he thought the people chasing after him were going to attack him.
And just three days ago an ISIS propaganda video was released in which the terrorist group claimed that they would attack the FIFA World Cup in Russia with drone bombs.
