As the tourist was crossing the 330ft high bridge in Piyan Mountain Cultural Tourism Scenic Area, several of the glass panels along the walkway shattered. Pictures posted by state media on Chinese social media site Weibo show the unnamed man clinging to the guardrail, the floor beneath him vanished.
Someone was trapped high up on a suspended glass walkway at a scenic spot in north east China yesterday when high winds caused glass panels to fall out around them. They were eventually able to climb to safety. pic.twitter.com/0vkFHasyWh
