Natalia Borodina, 35, was leaning out of a passenger window of a moving car driving along the highway near Punta Cana, Dominican Republic when her head collided with a lamp post.
The woman was promptly rushed to a hospital where she died from the trauma sustained during the collision.
According to RIA Novosti, Borodina’s elderly mother and sister who live in Russia don’t have enough money to have Natalia’s body flown back home for burial.
"Natalia has a sister and 80-year old mother living in Chelyabinsk Region. Her sister raises her own son and takes care of Natalia’s son. They don’t have enough money to pay for the transportation of the (Natalia’s) remains," Natalia’s sister’s friend told the news agency.
