Michael Bublé’s sister-in-law escapes death in a horrific accident on the road

Michael Buble’s sister-in-law escaped death in a horrific car accident in her native Argentina.

Nutritionist Daniela Lopilato was hospitalized after the car she was driving overturned and landed on its roof when another vehicle hit her from behind.

The mother of two had to be extricated by firefighters after sustaining neck and spine injuries in the accident in a Buenos Aires suburb called Martinez.

Dramatic images from the scene of the accident showed the 43-year-old’s overturned car next to a lamppost in front of a house on a residential street, the wheels of which pointed to the sky.

Daniela has told Argentinian journalists she feels “God gave her a second chance”.

Daniela, whose younger sister Luisana, an actress, is just days away from having her fourth child with Canadian-born Buble, has not spoken publicly about her anxiety as of midday local time on Wednesday.

But Argentinian journalist Pia Shaw said on a TV show that aired overnight footage of the accident scene: “The images you’re seeing now are horrific, and the protagonist is Daniela Lopilato.

“She was admitted to Los Arcos Hospital in Buenos Aires but is now back home.

“The car you see on the roof belongs to Daniela.

“It happened in the Martinez area. Another driver rammed Daniela’s car from behind. It was quite a violent collision.

“She injured her neck and back and couldn’t get out of the car and was really scared. Firefighters were mobilized to help her.”

She added: “The other driver stopped and handed over all their details. I spoke to Daniela recently after she was allowed out of the hospital and she told me that she just woke up and realized that God had given her a second chance.

“She feels like thank God she’s alive. She’s fine, but she went through a traumatic experience and is still devastated by it.”

Buble shares Noah, nine, son Elias, six, and daughter Vida, four, with Luisana, 35, and the couple are expecting their fourth child.

Luisana was revealed to be pregnant in February while she starred in his music video for I’ll Never Not Love You, in which the actress pulled her husband out of a dream sequence and flaunted her growing baby bump.

In April, Buble admitted he felt “so unstable and vulnerable” after Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a type of liver cancer, in 2016 at the age of three.

The youngster underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy, with Michael putting his career on hold for a while amid his boy’s treatment.

But the jazz singer shared how he was ready to get back into the swing of things after his son – now eight – went into remission.

Michael still faced the fear and uncertainty of his son’s diagnosis, even after he initially went into remission.

He told The Mirror: “I’ve obviously been through a lot. When I made the last record [in 2018]my son was in remission right now and I wasn’t ready to come back,” he explained.

“I didn’t know that at the time, but I was so mentally unstable and vulnerable. I made a safe record with producers I liked and I was just trying to protect myself and hold on to my career.

“But I’m feeling really good now and I was ready to go – like that huge burden had been lifted from me. My son was healthy, my children and wife were fine, life is good. Why wouldn’t I just want to explode and make an incredible record?’
