Anna Loginova Russiaâ€™s most famous female bodyguard was killed in Moscow trying to prevent her own car jacking.
Two men approached her 2007 Porsche Cheyenne as she stopped at a traffic light. One of the men opened the unlocked drivers door pulled her out of the drivers seat and jumped in. The glamorous 29-year-old and the head of a private security firm died from head injuries after clinging on to the door handle of her car and being dragged along the street at high speed as the car screeched away. Loginova was a highly respected bodyguard who protected millionaire Russian clients.
Last year, 50 Porsche cars were stolen in Moscow, including 12 within the last two months. Only three were ever found.
This makes me so sad. 29 years old. Good grief.
I drive a 12-year-old Chevy Cavalier, and I always lock my door when I’m
driving! I’m not afraid anyone would take the car, but I just feel vulnerable–once a bad guy is in the car (and I’m belted in) the potential of becoming a captive is just too high!
I think the lesson to take from this is that when one is in the bodyguard/EP business, it is imperative to remember you are not invincible. It only takes one moment of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and Game Over. I suppose that after long, long hours of being “on the alert” a bodyguard might just be exhausted and let down their guard in their personal life, on personal time. I don’t know. I’m just saddened by this story.
Be careful out there, all y’all.
