London, Aug 2 (IANS) British actor Vinnie Jones says he got a major scare when he was in Los Angeles during the July 29 earthquake. reports that Jones was on the 14th floor of a tower filming interviews for his upcoming film “Hell Ride” when the quake hit.

Jone said: “It was my first earthquake. I was 14 floors up and doing an interview when I could feel the building start to sway. I looked out over LA and the whole place was shaking. It was a strange feeling when it kicked off.

I felt a bit sea-sick and it made my legs go weird. I didn’t know if I should run for the door or just keep staring out the window. Looking back, if the tower block had come down, that would have been it for me. I don’t want to be a part of that again in a hurry.”
