Brandon Lee was the son of the legendary martial artist and film star, Bruce Lee. Like his father, Brandon Lee ventured into the entertainment industry (filming industry to be precise), which he never knew would lead to his untimely death. According to reports, Brandon was acting on the set of the film The Crow, and in one of the scenes, he was supposed to be shot at with a blank round of a revolver/prop gun.

However, unknown to him and the crew, the revolver/prop gun still had a fragment of a dummy round lodged in the barrel — and when he was shot at, the impact was severe because the force exerted by the shot was equivalent to that of a live round, thereby leading to his untimely death.
