Japan's prime minister fell over and rolled into a bunker while playing golf with Trump

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took a spill while climbing out of a sand trap during a golf game with President Donald Trump on Sunday.

But while Trump had his back turned and missed the spectacle, a Japanese news helicopter caught it in full.

After chipping his way out of the trap, the camera caught Abe hustling to climb out of the steep bunker only to lose his balance at the top, sending him rolling backwards. Abe emerged unharmed.

Luckily for Abe, his lapse in balance went largely unnoticed on the green. Luckily for the viewing public, nothing escaped the camera.
