A 2-year-old girl in Russia accidentally killed a 10-month-old baby while playing inside a car, local media reported Monday.

The incident took place Sunday in the village of Chertovitsy in the region of Voronezh Oblast. The girl was listening to music and playing in her parents' car when she mistakenly let the handbrake off. The vehicle reportedly rolled forward and hit an infant sitting on the side of the river with his father.

Several other adults were also sitting at a table near a riverbank, News-24 reported [Google Translate showed]. The accident "happened in a flash" and "no one had time to save the boy," eye-witnesses reportedly said.

The boy was declared dead after being rushed to a hospital, 7News reported. The vehicle involved in the accident was identified as Ford Focus. No other person was injured in the incident.

The Investigative Department for the Voronezh Region confirmed the incident was under investigation. Detectives are trying to establish if the girl was alone in the vehicle. They are also trying to investigate where her parents were when the girl was apparently alone in the vehicle.

The identities of those involved in the incident have not been revealed. It remains unclear if any charges will be placed in the case.

Unusual deaths sometimes occur under unique or extremely rare circumstances. However, in many cases, people evade tragedy and escape death.

Last month, two women sitting on a swing set overhanging Sulak Canyon in Dagestan, Russia, accidentally plunged off the top of a 6,300 feet cliff. The women miraculously survived the accident with minor injuries. A video of the incident went viral, showing the women taking a ride on the swing when suddenly the seat topples over due to a chain snap. The women were ejected over the steep cliff. People can be heard screaming in the video as the chain snapped and the two women tossed over. Local police launched an investigation and they were also planning to remove the swings built and operated without safety standards, Republic World reported at the time. The viral video has been viewed nearly 200,000 times.
