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.
 

吉林一景区高空栈道玻璃掉落 男子被困半空中瑟瑟发抖

5月7日,受大风天气影响,吉林省延边州龙井市琵岩山风景区内的网红打卡圣地——高空玻璃栈道突发险情。


因事发突然,在未发生险情时,景区玻璃桥上面还有人在观赏,然而谁知大风无此薄情,顿时掀起玻璃栈道,游玩男子意识情况不妙,紧急抓住玻璃桥锁链。


据目击者了解,当时风非常大,栈道的玻璃一个一个的被大风吹起,玻璃被吹的竖立起来,随后掉落,非常危险。
 

好在被困男子在现场工作人员和消防员的指挥下,自行爬回了安全地带,成功脱险,无人员伤亡情况。
