Chinese glass bridge alarms tourists!
Chinese glass bridge – Thrill-seeking tourists in China got more than they bargained for when cracks appeared in a glass-bottomed walkway suspended 1,080 meters (3,540 foot) over a canyon, reports said about Chinese glass bridge .
Images showing small cracks in the “sky-walk” built around a mountain, which opened just two weeks ago, spread on social media along with doubts over its safety.
“When I was almost at the end (of the walkway), there was a sudden loud bang and a tremor beneath my feet,” the state-run China Net cited one woman as saying on Tuesday.
The cracks resembled “winter frost on a window pane”, the report said, and were apparently caused by a dropped stainless steel cup Chinese glass bridge .
But the incident at Yuntai mountain in the northern province of Henan “doesn’t affect safety”, park officials were quoted as saying.
The incident occured during China’s hectic week-long national holiday period, when tens of millions take pleasure trips.
