Gym-goer Rushes to Help a Struggling Weight-lifter but Trips and Pushes the Heavy Barbell Down Onto His Chest Instead

This is the painful moment a man trips over and pushes a heavyweight down onto the chest of a gym-goer using the bench press.

The video, recorded in Garges Les Gonesse, France, shows a man using the bench press without a spotter to help him.

He appears to get stuck mid-lift and workers rush to his aid – only for one to stumble and force the heavyweight down onto his chest.
