A 28-year-old woman reportedly dropped dead as she was working out at a gym in Ecuador on November 29.

It was a shocking moment for the deceased, identified as Betsy Dayana Jaramillo Ramirez. Per reports, the 28-year-old was believed to have suffered from a heart attack while she was training on that day, the New York Post reported.

CCTV footage showed the sequence of events that happened on that day, The Mexico Post reported.

Ramirez was doing squats at the fitness center at that time while holding a weighted plate.

She was being guided by one of the fitness trainers. She followed the instructions given and did one repetition.

However, moments later, she got back up and dropped the weights and then fell forward, hitting the floor.

She lay unresponsive for a few seconds as other gymgoers rushed to her aid. Some called for medical assistance as well.

An ambulance was able to bring Ramirez to the Santa Teresita Hospital. However, the 28-year-old was pronounced dead even before they were able to reach the hospital.

The cause of death has yet to be confirmed. However, it is believed that Ramirez had died from an apparent heart attack.

It was a very surprising development considering Ramirez had allegedly been exercising regularly at the gym where she collapsed.

This comes months after another woman was instantly killed after reportedly dropping a 180 kg. weight at a gym in Mexico.

The unnamed woman was exercising at the time with her daughter when the incident happened.

She reportedly was able to hold the barbell only for it to fall and crush her neck, killing her on the spot. People tried to free her from the equipment but were apparently too late.

As a result, her daughter needed to get psychological support. She was deeply affected by the incident according to local media.
