This is the moment the dead body of a 33-year-old snow plough operator spins in circles on the roof after he climbed on top to carry out a fix and got crushed to death by the hydraulic arm.
The creepy incident took place in a car park near the Imperiya shopping centre in the city of Samara in the Russian region of Samara Oblast on the evening of 10th January.
In the footage, the small snow plough is seen driving in circles in a snow-filled car park with no one in the cab.
The operator’s body is seen lying on the roof and the man’s neck appears to have been crushed by the vehicle’s hydraulic arm.
Blood also appears visible around the man’s mouth and nose as his limp body shakes from the motion of the circling snow plough.
According to the police, the driver was clearing snow in the car park when he encountered a fault and climbed on top of the vehicle without turning off the engine to fix it.
The bucket arm crushed the man and he died on the spot from his injuries while the snow machine continued to drive around in circles with his limp corpse on the roof.
The police provided no further information on the victim and it is unclear if the investigation will continue.
