Another horrible accident occurred in Rio as the 2016 Summer Olympics are in full swing in Brazil.

Armenia’s weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan experienced a bloodcurdling injury during yesterday’s event of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

The incumbent champion of Europe had his elbow dislocated upon his second attempt to lift 195 kilograms in clean and jerk, Mirror wrote.

Karapetyan lifted the weight but immediately dropped it as his left arm gave way. Armenia’s big hope to get a gold medal in the event left the competition in tears, accompanied by the doctors.
