BANGOR, Maine (AP) - The sight of a body dangling from scaffolding at the site of the Bangor waterfront concerts caused a flurry of calls to first-responders. But it turns out the body was just a dummy used for training and an official is apologizing.

Mike Fischer of Production Services of Maine says the idea Monday morning was to train workers to deal with a rescue in the event someone falls from the scaffolding.

He tells WABI-TV that the goal was to train people in “real-world situations” but not to scare commuters who saw the dummy dangling from the scaffolding.

He said he’s sorry for causing a scare.
