Earlier this week, it was revealed that Paul McCartney and his wife had a close call during a helicopter ride.

The Daily Mail reported that the couple were returning to their home in East Sussex, England, when their chartered Sikorsky S-76C suddenly began plummeting toward trees as the pilot tried to land on the singer's helipad. According to the U.K. paper, the helicopter was just two feet away from a fatal crash when the pilot was suddenly able to pull the nine-seater aircraft away from the tree tops and later touched down safely at a nearby airport.
