Panic grips tourists in China after glass bridge on mountain cracks
BEIJING: A big throng of thrill-seeking tourists had a fright of their life when a new glass bridge built on the cliff of a 3,450-feet high mountain in China cracked setting off panic among the crowd.
Hundreds of tourists flocked to the recently built glass bridge at the Yuntai Mountain walkway in China’s Henan province which developed cracks under the weight of huge crowd on Monday.
Millions of Chinese visit all over country during week long National Day holiday which ended today.
The Yuntaishan glass bridge developed a crack yesterday, causing panic among the holidaymakers who visited the bridge for a thrill.
“I heard a crack from under… Everybody was screaming. I cried, ‘It’s really cracked! It’s really cracked!’ And pushed the people in front of me to get away,” a post on Chinese microblog Sina Weibo said.
An official of the Yuntaishan resort confirmed to state-run People’s Daily that the path had indeed been broken and that it has been closed for the time being.
Tourists were evacuated from the scene.
The official said one of the layers of the glass path broke because of a heavy thermos which was dropped by a visitor.
The glass path was originally just opened on September 20, 2015.
