The terrifying moment a double decker bus flies off a bridge has been caught on camera.

The bus was crossing the Gdanski Bridge in Warsaw, Poland, when it veered off the road, over the side and into the water.

However, before you get too concerned, the horrifying scene was just part of filming for a movie called Kick, a remake of a 2009 film by the same name about a young Indian boy who turns to crime, reports the Daily Star.

The bus is a red London bus, which likely means parts of the film are meant to take place in London.

While buses falling off bridges in relatively uncommon, there have been a number of recent incidents involving buses having roofs ripped off by bridges.

Back in October, a double decker bus roof was ripped off by a railway bridge in Harpenden; in December, a bus was left roofless when the driver took a wrong turn and crashed into a railway bridge in Kingston.

Meanwhile, in May, a double decker bus had its roof ripped clean off after it crashed into a railway bridge.

The driver of the First vehicle attempted to pass under the tracks near Portchester Railway Station, but unfortunately his efforts left him with an open-top bus.
