A six-month-old baby was killed by a monkey in Crimean city of Sevastopol.

The monkey, kept in a private zoo of 65-year-old local resident, managed to escape from its cage when its owner was cleaning it.

The monkey then scaled a fence into a neighboring garden, where it attacked a six-month old child, lying asleep in a stroller. The baby died.

Investigators were looking into the incident.
