I never laugh at shit like that. Either use a spotter or a power rack if ya not sure ya can handle the weight. Each and everyone of us could get injured in some regard every day in the gym. He learned his lesson hopefully.
I was competing at Bench Worlds and saw someone slip bar right out of hands and drop 500# plus on their chest on way up. it bounced off his ribs and went toward his neck toward esophogous. We got it just in time- i mean microseconds. Saved his life. Some assholes in audience had the gaul to laugh. Made me sick. Real funny. He broke 3 ribs, punctured lung and coughed blood. Thought he was dead.
