**WARNING: DISTRESSING CONTENT BELOW**
The distressing incident took place during the closing ceremony of the 2019 Feria de Las Flores in the city of Medellin, Colombia, yesterday.
In the footage, the commandos of the Colombian Air Force are seen holding on to the country’s flag as they soar through the air.
But disaster strikes moments later when the cable they are hanging onto appears to snap.
They then plummet to the ground as spectators gasp in horror.
The victims have since been identified as Jesus Mosquera and Sebastian Gamboa Ricuarte, who were based in Rionegro in Antioquia.
Emergency services were sent to the scene while the local airport was reportedly closed as an investigation got underway.
A Colombian Air Force spokesperson sent condolences to the servicemen’s families.
The statement added: “The reasons behind this painful accident are still being investigated by the authorities.”
Defence Minister Guillermo Botero said air shows featuring military personnel will be suspended indefinitely, as officials look into what caused the fall.
The incident comes just days after horrific CCTV footage emerged of a couple falling off a bridge they were kissing on.
Maybeth Espinoza, 34, was filmed embracing Hector Vidal, 36, when she started falling over the barrier in Peru.
With her legs wrapped around her partner, she tragically dragged him over the railing as well and they both plunged to their deaths 50ft below.
