Former Navy SEAL and veteran stuntman Harry O’Connor doubled for Vin Diesel in one of the action scenes from xXx where the film’s hero Xander Cage paraglides near the Palacky Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic.

O’Connor’s first attempt was completed without any incident and can be seen in the final cut of the Rob Cohen-directed movie. O’Conner, however, hit one of the bridge’s pillars during his second attempt, which killed him on the spot due to heavy injuries.
