He had said:

Narrow escape of an aircraft which could have ended in a great disaster. Miraculous save by the pilot’s presence of mind.

That is commendable. Except, that the video is a graphic simulation from a very popular video game, namely Grand Theft Auto.

And if you actually watch this video originally posted by a YouTube user, it’s pretty obvious that it’s a simulated situation.

The tweet has since been deleted.
