Death by 'zorbing': Horrific moment father-of-two is killed after giant inflatable ball sped out of control
Wow....what a terrifying experience this must have been...why were there no barriers put in place to prevent this happening?!Very sad.


'A father-of-two was killed in a horrifying accident when a giant inflatable ball in which he and another man were rolling down a mountain plunged off a cliff at a ski-resort in southern Russia.
Denis Burakov, 27, married with two young daughters, broke his neck and spine in the zorbing accident, say reports.
His companion Vladimir Shcherbov, 33, was hospitalised with concussion and multiple lacerations to the head and body, but miraculously was later released.'



'The so-called 'orb' was supposed to come to a halt at the bottom of a gentle snowy piste, designed for the sport, which originates in New Zealand.

An instructor is asked how far the 'orb' can go, replying 'not that far' and explaining there was a man lower down the mountain ready to catch it if it went off track.
But as it is pushed down the slope, a man's voice is heard saying: 'Oh f***, it's gone in the wrong direction again.'

The ball crashes through rocks and teeters on the edge of ravine - before disappearing from view, over the cliff.

Falling steeply and battered by rocks, it was pulled down relentlessly by gravity.
'The orb went on for about one and a half kilometres, jumping on the rocks and hitting them,' said anaide to local police commander Sergei Shuvayev .
It came to rest on a frozen lake called Peacock's Eye.'
