A Chinese tourist was stranded 330 feet high on a glass-bottomed bridge in high winds Friday when floor panes blew off and smashed.

The bridge is located in the Piyan Mountain Cultural Tourism Scenic Area outside the city of Longjing. The incident took place at 12:45 p.m. on Friday, when was hit by record-high winds of up to 150 kilometers per hour.

Pictures shared on social media show a before-and-after view of the bridge, with a tourist clinging to its metal framework. Much of the framework is twisted and buckled, with only a few glass panes — the only standing surface —remaining.

The tourist held on for 35 minutes while firefighters and police officers attempted to rescue him, and he eventually crawled to safety. Nobody was injured, but the tourist was moved to a hospital and is receiving counseling.

Glass-decked bridges are an increasingly popular novelty in China, with at least 60 built since 2016, the outlet reported. Regions have sought to outdo one another with world records.
