    One Russian man has died and another is injured in hospital after what was supposed to be a thrilling ride in the Caucasus Mountains went wrong.

    Friends filmed as they were sent off down the slope in the large ball known as a "zorb" - and could only watch in horror as it went off course and plunged over a precipice.

    The supplier said every safety rule had been broken.
