GML Space Rocks Tutorial

Sorry if this was mentioned, I did some searches but was unsuccessful
I was running through the GML version of the tutorial for space rocks and run into a problem with splitting the rocks when you shoot them.
The code provided in video and tutorial window results in an error. I know it happens when it tries to create a new instance and change the variable for the rocks to pick medium for a big rock and small for a medium rock. But I do not understand why or how to fix it.
I get this error :

this is the code, I hope someone can help/explain to me what is wrong here. Thanks

Code:
 with (other)
{
instance_destroy();
if (sprite_index == spr_asteroid_huge)
    {
    repeat(2)
        {
        var new_asteroid = instance_create_layer(x, y, "Instances", obj_asteroid);
        new_asteroid.sprite_index = spr_asteroid_med;
        }
    }
else if (sprite_index == spr_asteroid_med)
    {
    repeat(2)
        {
        var new_asteroid = instance_create_layer(x, y, "Instances", obj_asteroid);
        new_asteroid.sprite_index = spr_asteroid_small;
        }
    }
repeat(10)
    {
    instance_create_layer(x, y, "Instances", obj_debris);
    }
}
