A Russian rock musician has died after his powered paraglider plunged into a lake south of Bucharest, Romania.

The man, identified as Nik Baydin, a Russian who plays with Romanian band The R.O.C.K, died on Sunday evening after the flying apparatus, known as a paramotor, fell into a lake near the village of Comana.

Medics tried to resuscitate him for one hour, but failed. The Romanian pilot was transported to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Baydin, a vocalist and guitarist for the band, lived in Bucharest, and the group had staged a concert there on Friday.

Fans have been called to gather to remember Baydin on Monday evening in Bucharest. He is survived by his British wife, Fern Baydin.
