Falling icicles kill six people.

Six people have been killed in three days by icicles falling from buildings in a central Russian region.

Plummeting chunks of ice is an annual hazard for pedestrians in Russia during the spring when the sun finally melts thick layers of ice and snow which build up on roofs over months of freezing temperatures and darkness.

Medical authorities in the region reported five people that died in the city of Samara and another person died in the nearby town of Otradny between February 23 and February 25. » Article here
