Ricky Martin's dad suffers near death experience!
Ricky Martin had the scare of a lifetime after his father, Enrique Martin Negroni, was in a plane accident. The incident occurred in Isla Grande, Puerto Rico on Monday afternoon after he took his private plane for a spin. Martin Negroni experienced mechanical issues with his plane which required him to make an abrupt emergency landing.

Although it was a perilous landing, he made it out unharmed. The plane, however, didn't fare so well and suffered extensive damage. Family friend and actor Orvil Miller confirmed that the accident had occurred. Police official Israel Arroyo Martinez spoke out about the incident and said that initially the singer's father was not identified.
Luckily, Martin's dad is fine, but this accident could have been much worse if he hadn't taken the right steps in the plane landing. Martinez said his friend is in good spirits and had even been spotted having lunch at a local restaurant with his brother.
Next time Martin Negroni sets off on a flying adventure he should have his plane inspected twice just in case. You never know if an even worse incident can occur due to another mechanical failure. I'm glad to see both he and Ricky are in great spirits despite the scare he received.
