UFC star Derrick Lewis and his young son have been involved in a frightening quad bike crash on his own driveway.
His property's CCTV caught the moment things took a terrible turn, with the 35-year-old sharing the footage on his Instagram account.
Despite the carnage that ensued, Lewis posted "we're ok" alongside the clip.
The Louisiana man is seen sitting on the quad bike, before picking up his son and placing him on his knee.
But the gas pedal is then inadvertently pressed and the bike speeds forward.
It narrowly avoids heading straight into the side of the house, instead trampling over a tall plant, ripping up shrubbery, taking a spin and finally coming to a standstill.
Lewis then hoists his son off, before clambering off the machine himself.
Fellow UFC legend Jon Jones was just one of those expressing concern, writing: "Jeez, hope the little guy wasn’t too shaken up."
Lewis last fought on August 8 when he won by KO against Aleksei Oleinik.
He has an MMA record of 24 wins and seven defeats in his career.
But in February Lewis revealed that he has been battling with a "life or death" medical condition for over a year and has been urged not to step back into the cage.
He told Ariel Helwani on ESPN: "The UFC doctors know what it is, and the doctors here in Houston already know what it is, as well.
"So it’s just something that’s been going on that I still got to get addressed.
“It’s like life-or-death situation serious."
But the 'Black Beast' wouldn't divulge what the exact issue was, and was back in the cage six months later.
