According to reports, Vicky – from East Java, Indonesia – was attempting to squat-press a staggering 210kg at The Paradise Bali gym in Sanur.
As he tried to extend his legs under the immense weight of the barbell resting on his shoulders, disaster struck.
The heavy bar proved too much to bear, and he struggled to maintain his balance.
In a chilling moment, Vicky reportedly lost his footing and came crashing to the ground, with the barbell landing on the back of his neck.
There was reportedly only one spotter behind him at the time, but sadly, they were powerless to prevent the devastating accident.
Immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, Vicky underwent emergency surgery for a broken neck and critical compression of vital nerves connected to his heart and lungs.
Despite the heroic efforts of the medical team, Vicky’s life could not be saved, and the fitness community lost a shining star.
Friends, fellow fitness enthusiasts, and those touched by the influencer’s positive impact have taken to social media to express their grief and pay tribute.
