A big throng of thrill-seeking tourists had a fright of their life when a new glass bridge built on the cliff of a 3,450-feet high mountain in China cracked setting off panic among the crowd.

On Monday, hundreds of tourists flocked to the recently built glass bridge at the Yuntai Mountain walkway in China’s Henan province which developed cracks under the weight of huge crowd. The tourists were immediately evacuated from the scene.

An official of the Yuntaishan resort confirmed to state-run People’s Daily that the path had indeed been broken and that one of the layers of the glass path broke because of a heavy thermos that was dropped by a visitor. It has been closed for the time being.

The glass path originally opened on September 20, 2015.
