I saw this the other day and was amazed he survived this crash. He could really handle that helicopter but took his attention away for a second and that's all it takes. Good footage though and glad he is ok.
Footage of a helicopter crash during the filming of the South Korean version of Top Gear has been released by the BBC.
A stunt race involving a Corvette ZR1 supercar and an AH1 Cobra helicopter on Top Gear Korea almost ended in tragedy when the pilot lost control of the aircraft.
The BBC has released footage of the moment that the helicopter crashed towards the end of the race and it shows the presenter rushing out of the car to help.
Despite the crash happening close to the film crew, no one was seriously injured.
The popularity of Top Gear has led to the programme being sold to 212 territories and four international versions have been made.
A similar stunt was safely completed in the original version of the programme by Jeremy Clarkson in 2008.
