Glass Bridge Shatters, Man Hangs on For Dear Life

We’re sure you’ve seen those viral videos of glass walkways across very high canyons, or top floors of high rises. This is what happens when one of those beautiful and terrifying foot bridges gets pummeled by high winds.

In the Piyan Mountain region of China, 93mph winds caused portions of a glass bridge in LongJing to shatter. Towering 330 feet above the ground, one poor dude was living our nightmares.

Thankfully, the man in question made it off the bridge safely. He was taken to a local hospital, and received counseling for what was obviously a traumatic event.

The LongJing glass bridge remains closed, pending an investigation.
