woman crushed to death
A woman has died at Mexico City gym after trying to lift a 180 kg (400 lb) iron bar , in a horrific accident caught on a surveillance camera.
During the last moments of her life, the unidentified woman can be seen standing in front of a barbell with her daughter before bearing the weight on her shoulders.
The man and her daughter attempt to lift the massive weight before two other people rush out to help in the futile effort to save the woman.
The man can be seen laying the woman on her side while the others look at him in shock.
The woman, who was said to be aged 35-40, was working out in the gym when the tragedy struck.
In the video, just before the horrific accident, a man adjusts weights on the machine before the woman gets ready to lift it.
But as we said, something went wrong and the consequences were immediate and dire.
The three men managed to remove the weights from the woman’s neck, but she fell to the ground unconscious. A man pulls her off the ground, but soon realizes that blood is bleeding from her head.
Paramedics from the Red Cross arrived at the scene, only to find that the woman no longer had vital signs.
Her daughter was said to have been severely affected by the accident and to receive psychological support.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office opened an investigation into the incident.
The authorities have not yet revealed the name of the victim.
The gym owner has been temporarily detained in order to verify the identity of the woman.
The investigation is still ongoing.
