Watch Richard Hammond Tell The World He's Not Dead

/ Comments

This guy is having too many close calls.

We're sure you know by now what happened to Richard Hammond. Escaping death due to a serious high speed car crash not once but twice is, for lack of better words, stupid lucky. Unlike his horrendous 2006 crash which left him in a coma for two weeks, this time he managed to hobble away with only a fractured knee. Seconds later, the all-electric Rimac Concept One he was driving in Switzerland burst into flames. Hammond was airlifted to a local hospital, which is where he's recuperating today.

To clarify to the world he's officially alive and well, Hammond had his pal and co-host, James May, film a very brief video from his hospital bedside. The knee surgery, as Hammond describes, will result with him having a "Swiss army knee," but if that's the worst of all of this, then fine.

He also apologizes to his wife and daughters for what's happened. Best of all, James smuggled in a bottle of gin for Hammond the night before. Hey, that's what friends are for. Glad you're okay, Richard. Please don't scare everyone like that again.
