Reports said the pensioner died ‘instantly’ from the large icicle.

Her body was seen on the street as people walk by as if nothing has happened. Later the scene was sealed off.

Reports say the pensioner’s family are preparing to sue the municipal authorities which are responsible for removing potentially lethal icicles hanging from buildings.

Contractors named as Verny Vybor had cleared this building but evidently missed the killer icicle.

Separate footage shows other uncleared icicles hanging from the building.

Tolemis said: ‘Icicles were crashed by the municipal workers but it looks like they did not clean up all of them.’

Local police registered the incident at Adal Residence as a ‘tragic accident’.

But the local administration in Bostandyksky district claimed the contractor was ‘responsible’.

Officials were ‘in touch with the relatives of the dead woman and is ready to provide all the necessary help with organising the funeral’.

The authorities have promised to support the family.

But KTK TV reported the family intended to sue over the woman’s death.
