The 28-year-old, who was attempting to beat his “personal best”, is then pictured losing his grip and is suddenly trapped under the bar which is crushing his throat.

Jason was pinned under the weight for around 17 seconds and is pictured trying to wriggle free.

Despite attempting to roll backwards and onto his side, the weightlifter is unable to free himself.

He is eventually saved when fellow gym-goers come to his rescue and lift the bar off his throat.

Speaking with the Courier Mail, Jason said he was “shaking” and “numb” during the terrifying ordeal.

He said: “It pays to have a spotter, you have to have one.

“I gave up trying to get it off, so I turned to my side. One whole side of my neck went numb. I couldn’t stop shaking.”

Jason spent five hours in hospital following the accident and was left wearing a neck brace.
