'Stunt' explosion mistaken for real thing

- It was a stunt for an upcoming movie but the people who saw it happen live and on social media had no idea it was just a stunt.

A double decker bus was blown up on a London bridge on Sunday as part of the filming of the action thriller, "The Foreigner," starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.

Members of the London Fire Brigade were on standby and shared video and photos of the blast.

But people on social media weren't notified about the stunt beforehand and thought it was the real thing. Those who were duped by the stunt were shocked and angered, and said it was insensitive not to notify anyone.
