Teenager falls to his death from Europe's tallest building 'after slipping while taking a selfie'

A teenager fell to his death from the 86th floor of Europe's tallest building after reportedly slipping while he was taking a selfie.

The 18-year-old, named only as Alexander Sh, landed on a Mercedes G-Wagen parked below the 1,161ft OKO skyscraper in Moscow.

Russian reports gave two versions over the student's tragic fall from close to a skating rink high above the Russian capital.

As well as the selfie version of events, when he fell, others suggested that he had a furious row with his father before running to a rooftop helicopter pad and falling off, Daily Mail reports.

The OKO - meaning The Eye - is currently the tallest in Europe, at a height of 354 metres.
But news website citing eyewitnesses said:
'People said there was an argument between the young man and his father.
'In the heat of the moment Alexander ran to a helicopter pad and jumped off.'
