Photos On How A German weightlifter Matthias Steiner Survives 432-pound barbell Slip to his head,

By Austin Amuzie - Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Defending weightlifting gold medalist Matthias Steiner walked away from a terrifying incident Tuesday when he dropped a barbell weighing 432 pounds on his neck during the Olympic 105+ kg competition.


The German was attempting to snatch 196 kg when his knees and arms buckled, causing the massive weight to fall on top of his head. Steiner collapsed under the barbell and instantaneously flopped while its mass bent his neck and head. He was immediately tended to by medical officials and somehow got to his feet, saluted the crowd and walked off under his own power.

He didn't return to the competition. The Associated Press reports Steiner went to the hospital for precautionary X-rays.

Here's How It All Happened.
