SUMMARY
The pilot performed a demonstration flight with an autorotation landing and roll-out without the engine running. Before landing, the pilot lost altitude and made a touchdown maneuver with a bounce, loss of direction in the final phase of the landing roll and, as a consequence, the gyroplane overturned. The pilot was not injured. The structure of the gyrocopter was significantly damaged.

Based on:
 
Looks like he pranged the landing hard and it bounced and he lost control
 
A wonderful outcome for the pilot not being injured. A sad outcome for the airframe. Here is a great chance to build another JK-3 with upgrades and improvements.
