Bodybuilder gets 10 stitches in face following gym stunt gone horribly wrong
| Last updated
A bodybuilder said he had to have ten stitches on his face after a gym stunt went very badly wrong. Check it out here:
Bradley Martyn is no stranger to bizarre and extreme lifts. On his Instagram page and YouTube channel, the beast can be seen lugging about huge weights, jumping on trucks and lifting women above his head.
Writing on Instagram, the big lad said: "Posting in 5 mins how i destroyed my face, it's been 12 years since I been filming stupid lifting videos.
"I finally got got."
And got got he most certainly did.
In the video of the stunt gone wrong, Bradley can be seen holding a weight plate on his chest - which in itself may be quite heavy for many of us.
But then a whole woman stands on top of the weight plate, with Bradley then bench pressing the weight plate - and her - up into the air.
It looked like it was mission accomplished, but as he lowered the weight plate back down the woman seemed to lose her footing and slip off it, giving Bradley a big old boot to the mush. The weight plate may even have clobbered him too.
Captioning the post - which has been viewed 3.7 million times - the bodybuilder wrote: "How it feels when you drop your phone on your face."
Commenting on the video, one viewer wrote: "This is why I whisper nice things to my plateweights everyday!… you never know when one is just going to flip on you."
Another said: "Darwin Award Finalist. Glad ur ok dude!"
A third added: "Thats what you get for turning the gym into a circus."
Wading into the comments section, Bradley himself then wrote: "10 stitches lol."
Well, at least he's seen the funny side of it.
In an Instagram story, he thanked staff at West Hills ER for stitching his face back together and added that the woman and his teeth were unharmed too, which is a bonus.
No doubt he'll be back lifting women above his head again in no time.
