Woman Boiled To Death Stepping Out Of Her Car In Russia

A Russian woman is dead after falling into a pit of boiling water in Saint Petersburg. The woman fell into the pit after parking her car beside a ruptured underground heating pipe.

A man who attempted to rescue the woman suffered burns but is in stable condition.

Russia has many underground heating pipes that pump boiling water into houses for heat. As the infrastructure ages these type of accidents could happen more often.

The ruptures regularly happen in the late autumn when the system begins to operate for the winter.
