An Armenian man has died after being struck by a taxiing passenger plane at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, a source from the investigative agencies told Lenta.ru, Armenpress reports.

The 25-year old Armenian citizen was hit by a Boeing 737 bound for Athens, Greece, according to local media.

The victim was identified by his documents that emergency personnel found on him.

According to other local media reports, the 25-year-old man had been deported from Spain and was returning to Armenia via Russia.

Police are currently determining how he appeared on the tarmac.
