A gym junkie has been filmed experiencing a horrific accident, with his leg bending backward while trying to leg press a mountain of weights. The videos have gone viral on social media, with the injury clip being viewed almost a million times on Facebook.
A second video showing a close-up of the aftermath has been viewed 2.7 million times. Dheeraj DC wrote on the Facebook video post about his friend: “Injury during leg workout – say no to ego lifting.”
In the first video, a man is seen sitting at a leg press machine with heaps of weights loaded up. However, his left leg gives away – bending the wrong way – during one press. The machine clicks on to a safety mechanism so he is not crushed completely.
