A young woman faceplanted a gym bench when it collapsed underneath her during a workout.
Student Patricia Vargas, 20, was going through her routine in her college’s gym in Atlanta, Georgia, on January 15 when the bench she was lying on fell back.
As she was facing backwards, Patricia had no support when the bench gave way and was able to pull up just in time not to hit it with her face.
Patricia said: “I was fine, just bruised my ego.
“When I looked around, I saw that no one noticed, but at the end of the video when I smile, I realise that one guy did see me, and that’s why I smile.”
