A horrific accident in India killed a suburban tech CEO and seriously injured the company’s president, and the whole thing was caught on video.

What was designed to be a celebration of success turned tragic when they fell 15 feet in front of a packed audience during a theatric onstage entrance at a company party.

Video on social media captures the company’s silver jubilee celebrations–and the freak accident.

A CBS affiliate in India says this happened Thursday night. There were 700 people in attendance at the two day event to mark Vistex Asia’s successful 25 years in the industry.
