Man left clinging to rails on a glass-bottom bridge in China after strong winds shatter panels

A man walking on a glass-bottom bridge in China was left stranded temporarily after some of the panels shattered underneath his feet. 

The Piyan Mountain bridge, located in the city of Longjing, China, was hit with gust force winds that damaged several glass panels in the walkway, leaving tourist clinging to the rails on Friday, The Guardian reported.  

A picture of the man hanging onto the rails with multiple glass panels missing was shared to Sina Weibo, a Chinese social media platform.  

The bridge is more than 300 feet high and was reportedly hit with winds up to 93 miles per hour before rescue teams were able to rescue the man at 1:20 p.m. on Friday, according to CNN. 

“There were no casualties. After being kept in the hospital for observation, the trapped person was in stable emotional and physical condition and has been discharged from the hospital,” officials said in a statement to CNN.
