I could not think of anywhere more unlikely for this to happen than in Siberia. I could imagine it in Kazakhstan or perhaps even in Mongolia a long time before I could imagine it in Siberia. As you pointed out, you are far more likely to have bad things happen to you in Italy, or Germany or the US than in Siberia. There are always freak stories anywhere, but the reality is it is so far away from normal that you cant really take it into consideration. If you are the kind of person that worries about freak events, then you would never leave the comfort of your home.
