This is the terrifying moment when a couple falls 25 feet onto the sidewalk after breaking the railings of their balcony during a row.
Olga Volkova and Yevgeny Karlagin, both 35, had an angry argument from passers-by filming the scenic street view in St. Petersburg, Russia.
They were taken to the hospital for surgery for serious but not life threatening injuries after falling to the ground on the second floor of their home.
In footage shot around 10 a.m., when the couple leaned on them, the balcony railings appear to loosen, causing them to lose their balance and fall through.
Authorities in St. Petersburg are now due to investigate the incident after the couple, who have a young son together, reportedly sustained broken limbs.
Prosecutors are checking whether the balcony is poorly equipped or in poor condition, which leads to charges being brought against those responsible.
Eyewitness Denis told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper: “I went for a walk with my colleague and filmed the historical view of the street. “I noticed the line and started shooting when this happened.
“Someone with medical experience was around and checked their impulses and said they both survived. We called an ambulance. “
