A mother-of-two has died after her womb was almost torn out by her alleged rapist, according to reports. Sveltana Sapogova, 41, is said to have died when she was raped with a car jack that was then opened inside her.
Police arrested Danil Cheshko, 19, who is alleged to have carried out the attack after offering her a lift home from a mutual friend’s funeral, according to reports in southern Russia. It is believed that he confessed to police that he had carried out the violent attack, leaving her for dead in the car. She was found by a passerby who called police and paramedics, but nothing could be done to save her after she lost so much blood.
A friend of the victim called Nadezhda said: ‘The car jack was found on the back seat of the car next to Svetlana. ‘It was all covered in blood. Now it is being examined by police. Svetlana lost 3 litres of blood. ‘Her crotch was ripped out. He left her in the car to die and fled. Doctors made surgery all night through, and twice resuscitated her. ‘He was caught immediately and he confessed everything.’ The victim had two children, a girl aged 13 and a boy, 11. Cheshko is being investigated for causing death by inflicting serious harm to health or negligence and also sexual violence.
