A section of the new glass-bottomed walkway at Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in Henan Province, China cracked on Monday as tourists were walking across.
A spokesperson for the Yuntai Mountain tourism bureau told People’s Daily Online that the cracks occurred after a tourist dropped a stainless steel mug on the walkway. Only one of a total of three layers of glass broke, so the tourists were not in danger, the spokesperson said.
The walkway opened in September. It is now closed until further notice.
