Personal trainer d!es in the gym while lifting 100kg barbell that fell and crushed his neck

A man lifting a metal barbell loaded with over 100kg of weight has been killed after it fell and crushed his neck.

 

The 27-year-old man from China died after his neck was crushed between the shaft of the weights and the training bench he was working on. 

 

The horrifying accident was captured on video.

 

The victim, who has now been identified as Xiao Hou, was at a gym in China’s Henan province.

 

A 29-second clip showed the man struggling to bench press the excessive weight. He did not have a spotter.

The harrowing clip shared by local sites shows the 27-year-old barely able to lift the barbell over his chest before trying to rack it on the J-hook.

 

It was then his arms gave out, and the bar, with 50kg on each side rolled from his chest onto his neck. Pinning his head to the bench he was laying on.

He desperately tries to free himself for approximately 25 seconds before his body goes limp. At one point in the footage, he can be seen having violent spasms.
