Miley Cyrus “almost died” after her private jet was struck by lightning on Tuesday.
The singer and her friends got the shock of their lives after their plane had to make an emergency landing.
But Wrecking Ball hitmaker Brandi’s sister, who was on board during the strike, downed a glass of champagne as they hit the ground.
“I’m going to try not to be dramatic but we almost died,” she said, before adding, “Bottoms up!”
Her friend Val Pina added: “Quite literally almost died.
“We just landed in I don’t know where, 200 miles from where we were supposed to land and because the lightning struck the plane so low!” Brandi added.

“Cheers,” Val said before clinking his glasses.
The 29-year-old traveled to the Paraguayan capital of Asunción from Bogota, Colombia.
She was heading there to play at the Asunciónico festival but had to cancel due to the incident.
Miley told followers of the terror in the air: “To my fans and anyone who is concerned after hearing about my flight to Asuncion. Our plane was caught in a big unexpected storm and struck by lightning (sic).
“My crew, band, friends and family, who have all traveled with me, are safe after an emergency landing.”
“Unfortunately we couldn’t fly to Paraguay. I LOVE YOU.”
The fans showed understanding and sent good wishes to the singer.
“We’re glad you’re safe, Miley. I hope Paraguayan fans can understand and hope to see you another time,” wrote one.
“We are so happy that you, your family and your team are doing well. I can’t imagine how scary it was going through a flight like this,” added another.
She shared a snap of the damage to the plane caused by the bolt and a clip of the thunderstorm.
In Brandi’s Instagram video, she showed off the jet’s interior, which featured beige leather seats and plenty of legroom.
The aircraft can fly at a top speed of 674.4 miles per hour and a cruising speed of 547.7 miles per hour.
Miley performed at Lollapalooza Argentina and Lollapalooza Chile last weekend wearing a bright blue catsuit.
