    In the first xXx, there is a scene where Vin Diesel's character rappels down a wire from his parachute to a submarine going under a nearby bridge. In the final shots it seems as though our hero gets under the bridge and on the submarine just in time.

    In reality however, during the second take, the stunt man doing that scene unfortunately hit the bridge while sliding down the wire and later [perished].
