Miley Cyrus has reportedly escaped death after her plane was struck by lighting on Tuesday night while she was en route to Paraguay to headline the 2022 Asuncionico music festival.
The pop-icon’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing after the horrifying incident. Her plans to headline a show in Paraguay were cancelled after the plane rerouted to safety.
“To my fans and everyone worried after hearing about my flight to Asunción. Our plane was caught in a major unexpected storm and struck by lightning," Cyrus wrote on social media. "My crew , band , friends and family who were all traveling with me are safe after an emergency landing. We were unfortunately unable to fly into Paraguay. I LOVE YOU."
Along with her message, Miley shared a video of the storm taken from the plane and a picture of the damage from the lightning strike.
Furthermore, the 29-year-old singer had also showed a video of the terrifying situation from her seat on the plane. Filming the view outside her aeroplane window, the black sky suddenly lights up with a flash of lightning. Passengers can be heard letting out big gasps.
According to its website, 2022 Asunciónico is the "one of Paraguay's largest rock festivals" typically held every March. Local reports say Cyrus' performance was expected to draw a big crowd. Notably, the last festival took place in 2019.
For the unversed, Cyrus has been performing in South America. Over the weekend, the pop-turned-rock star performed at Lollapalooza Argentina and Lollapalooza Chile in eye-catching jumpsuits.
