According to Salvador, she insisted on doing the stunt since it looked doable.

"Tama naman 'yun, lahat sila, pinipigilan ako. Kaso, nagte-take 'yung double. 'Yung angat ng helicopter, mababa lang. So sabi ko, alam mo Direk, kaya ko 'yan, ako na lang," she said.

While they were shooting the scene, Salvador admitted that it became more difficult.

"Nung umaangat na ng todo, sabi niya, 'Stop! Stop!'. Siyempre maingay 'yung helicopter 'di ba? Maingay, sabi nung AD, 'yung makikita 'yung captain, 'Up! Up!' So napakataas ko," she added.

The scene, which aired in early December, showed Salvador's character Lily Cruz hanging onto a helicopter to chase Red Dragon, played by Zsa Zsa Padilla.
