THIS is the horrifying moment an overloaded barbell broke a bodybuilder’s neck while trying to squat-press 210kg.
Justyn Vicky, who boasted nearly 30,000 Instagram followers at the time of writing, died shortly after a tragic accident in Sanur, Bali.
The bodybuilder, nutritionist, and personal trainer was strength training at The Paradise Bali gym on July 15 when the accident happened.
The video shows how a 33-year-old girl from East Java, Indonesia, grunts as she tries to stretch her legs while a heavy metal bar weighs on her shoulders.
As he struggles to stand, the only bystander behind him is helpless as Justyn falls on his nose seconds later.
When the mover hits the ground, the bar will fall on the back of his neck, pushing his head forward at a bad angle.
He then falls flat on his back in front of the dangerous gymnasts.
After the accident, Justyn was rushed to a local hospital with a broken neck and severe compression of vital nerves connecting the heart and lungs.
He died shortly after emergency surgery, despite the doctors’ best efforts.
The Paradise Bali gym later said in a social media tribute: “To our beloved Justyn, your impact on our lives is immeasurable.
“Your legacy will live on through the countless lives you touched, the changes you inspired, and the love and passion you shared every time we were together.
“Rest in peace, dear friend. You will be in our hearts forever.”
