TWO young brothers fell 110ft to their deaths as they played Spiderman together during the coronavirus lockdown.
Tragic Ivan Zakharov, ten, and Stepan, seven, reportedly opened the window of their flat in Moscow, Russia, and fell from it.
The pair, who were talented dancers, fell around 25 seconds apart from the 11th floor of the tower block and died on the spot.
Their mother Irina, 41, and sister Maria, 12, were in another room when the tragedy happened.
Investigators suspect the brothers jumped rather than fell 110 ft, possibly as part of a game, according to reports.
Russia has been on lockdown since March 28, with schools closed and children not allowed to go out to local playgrounds.
Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper reported: “There were no traces of slipping from the windowsill.
“The scatter of bodies also confirms another version – the children fell not directly under the windows, but a little further away.”
The paper, which has close links to law enforcement, reported: “Evidently the quarantined children began to fool around – they removed flower pots, opened a window and climbed onto a table.
“Their fingerprints were above the window.
“Perhaps they played Spiderman.”

Ten minutes before the incident, the boys had told their mother they were playing together.
Their father Yegor, 44, owner of a children’s clothes shop chain, was not at home at the time.
Ivan and Stepan both attended Todes, a famous Russian dance school.
