Famous musician Miley Cyrus along with others were forced to do an emergency landing after their plane was struck with lightning. Cyrus was heading to the Asunciónico Music Festival in Paraguay when an unexpected storm formed in their path of flight. The public was made aware of the incident after Cyrus posted a statement on her Instagram saying, “To my fans and everyone worried after hearing about my flight to Asunción. Our plane was caught in a major unexpected strom and struck by lightning.” She reassured everyone that all passengers on the flight including her band, family, and friends, were all safe and well. Unfortunately due to the emergency situation, Cyrus will not be able to make it to Paraguay for the music festival.
People around the world take a sigh of relief as this did not turn out to be another JFK Jr. or Buddy Holly type of incident and are glad Cyrus and everyone else on the aircraft are safe and well.
