FITNESS influencer Justyn Vicky has died aged 33 after a tragic accident at a gym as he attempted to squat-press 460lb.
The young bodybuilder, who boasted nearly 30,000 Instagram followers, died shortly after the horror accident in Sanur, Bali.
The bodybuilder, nutritional advisor, and personal trainer was strength-training at The Paradise Bali gym on July 15 when the mishap took place.
Footage shows how the 33-year-old from East Java, Indonesia, grunts while trying to extend his legs as the heavy bar weighs down upon his shoulders.
As he struggles to stand upright, the lone spotter behind him is completely helpless as Justyn falls onto his bum seconds later.
As the influencer hits the floor, the stacked barbell comes crashing down onto the back of his neck, pushing his head forward at a gruesome angle.
