Netflix hit ‘Bird Box’ used actual footage from disaster
LOS GATOS, Calif. -- The mayor of Lac-Megantic, Quebec, says she was appalled to discover that footage of the most horrific day in her town's history was presented as fiction in two Netflix productions. Footage of the 2013 runaway train disaster that killed 47 people and destroyed most of the small town's downtown core appears in the Netflix film "Bird Box" and in an episode of the science fiction series "Travelers," the BBC reports.
