Fun, then fatal
Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is one of the most popular places for tourists who go on a Caribbean vacation. You can often find all-inclusive deals that include flight, resort, all-you-can-eat food, and endless booze for next to nothing, all year round. Punta Cana makes for an affordable, yet luxurious family vacation. I go on these all-inclusive beach getaways at least once a year. While frat bros use them for degenerate spring break partying, I enjoy the quiet serenity of an adults-only resort, where I can turn my brain off.
Usually the worst thing that happens to the tourists at these resorts is sunburn, puking up some of the free daiquiris, or the dreaded Montezuma’s Revenge.
But for one beautiful, fun loving woman, her Punta Cana story is a tragedy. And it’s also shrouded in mystery. Did she realize it was dangerous? Was she impaired? Why didn’t her friend stop her?
Warning: Graphic content!
Natalia Borodina was a 35-year-old Russian mother on one who decided to go on a trip to Punta Cana with her best friend and her son, who is said to be around 8 years old. From the uploaded video (which you can watch later on), the trip was meant to be a “girls trip” where Natalia and her friend could let loose and act like college kids all over again.
Borodina and her friend Ivanna Boirachuk rented a Kia and decided to drive down one of Punta Cana’s highways. Ivanna was not only doing the driving, but had her phone out to record Natalia doing some sexy stunts the friends must have thought would be fun. Little did they know, the stunts would end in tragedy.
Natalia had decided to take her bikini top off and hang out the open passenger side window. Now, she wasn’t just popping her head out to catch the wind her hair. She had most of her upper body leaning out of the car, topless, and sucking her finger for the camera.
It’s only mere seconds of doing this that you can see Natalia’s head make contact with a lamppost.
She was rushed to a hospital where she later died of “serious injuries.”
Natalia was living in Cannes, France, where she worked as an estate agent who sold various properties to wealthy Russians.
In 2014, there was a 24-year-old mother who died while sticking her head out of the car window to throw up from drinking too much.
In the same year, a 17-year-old Texas girl died when she fell out of a moving vehicle, even though her friends tried too save her.
While these types of accidental deaths aren’t very common, they could have been avoided. We’ll never know why Natalia — a grown woman with a child — decided to do what she did, but we can help spread the word and prevent other people around the world being reckless.
Were Natalia and her friend drinking and/or doing drugs? Were they just caught up in the moment of fun silliness? Why did the friend upload the video online? And if she didn’t do it, who did?
Hopefully more is revealed to us soon.
Drive safely and leave the stunts to the ones you pay for at the resorts.
