Sweden: Elk plunges off car park roof in fatal fall

An elk flung itself from the top floor of an eight-metre-high parking lot in Borlaenge, Wednesday, fatally injuring itself much to the horror of a passing motorist who captured the moment on camera.

The elk, having somehow managed to find its way onto roof of the Kupolen shopping centre, took the plunge after becoming distressed when trying to find a way down.

Eric Lindvall, who filmed the incident, reportedly got out of his car and put his jacket over the wounded animal in an attempt to calm it down. However, police have confirmed that the animal later died of injuries sustained in the fall.
