The Colombian singer was on his way to the Bahamas for a vacation when his small plane malfunctioned, sending the craft careening into a nearby field. Balvin and his crew escaped the wreck unharmed, but were definitely a little shaken up.

Footage of the aftermath was captured on Balvin’s Instagram account, with the short message, “?? thanks for the miracle !!”

One of Balvin’s reps released a statement to Billboard, saying, “I can confirm that there was an incident with a small plane on which J Balvin was departing the Bahamas. J Balvin Is OK, sustaining no injuries, but we do not have any further details on exactly what happened with the flight at this time.”

Balvin updated his Instagram, letting fans know he was okay, and that his sense of humor was still intact after the incident.
