    This is very tragic. Please take the proper safety steps! Use a spotter when powerlifting!

    Or, as mentioned in some other threads, buy a safety cage (aka power cage, squat rack, or whatever) BEFORE you buy a barbell.

    good heavens. Never try to lift alone, especially when you're told not to. now my throat hurts from reading that.

    Bad coaching.

    Bad parenting.

    Bad thinking.

    Bad day.

    I about did it to myself one night about 20 years ago.

    I had been drinking. I went lifting, by myself, at the gym. A black cop, off duty, named Ronny, who was huge, saved me that night. I've never gone near a weight drunk since.

    Tragic, but, life. In a moment..everything can change, and, often, does.
