For those with a fear of heights, this may be your worst nightmare.

A man was left holding on to a guard railing for dear life from a 100-metre-high glass-bottomed suspension bridge at Piyan Mountain in Longjing city after it was damaged by strong winds in northeast China. Scary pictures of the incident have gone viral on social media.

Local media reported that gusts of up to 150km per hour blew out several glass panels, trapping the tourist until he could be rescued by firefighters, police, and forestry and tourism personnel more than half an hour later.

Photos shared on social media showed the man suspended over dizzying heights, surrounded by gaping holes where the glass panels used to be. The incident has drawn many discussions online, with over 4 million views on China’s microblogging social media platform, Weibo.

The man has been sent to the hospital where he received assessment and counselling following the ordeal, and the resort has since been closed for investigation, according to reports.

Users described the vertigo-inducing image on social media as terrifying with some commenting that “anyone who goes on that thing is insane.”

Glass bridges are a popular tourist attraction in China, with the most famous one in Zhangjiajie national park, Hunan province, which stretches 430 metres across a canyon, 300 metres in the air. However, in 2019, several glass bridges and walkways were closed in a Chinese province over safety fears.

The Piyan Mountain resort has been closed pending an investigation.
