Never dump a weight on purpose. That is how people get seriously hurt. Hang in there and do the best you can. Glad you didn't get hurt.
Dump on purpose? No. But if the choices are potential injury or dump, I'm going to dump.
I think any competent spotter would be ready for a dump, unless the bar slips off the back.
