China glass walkway 'cracks' when visitors walk on it

China glass walkway 'cracks' when visitors walk on it”

It was a cracking humour that had its shade of sham.

A Chinese tour guide falls to his knees as as a glass walkway "cracks" under him in video that has gone viral over the weekend, but this is no accident.

Unsuspecting tourists got more than they bargained for when a glass walkway suspended 1066 metres above ground appeared to crack beneath their feet.

It occurred at the walkway around the eastern face of the Taihang Mountain in Hebei, China.

But the adrenaline factor on the bridge levelled up with a new feature rather special effects that make the glass panels on the floor look shattered as and when anyone walks.

The pressure-sensitive panels create sporadic cracking sounds and splintering glass effects, that justifiably scare tourists. A glass walkway has been built in the Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in China and it hangs at 1,180 metres (3,871 feet) above sea level, but what will really grab your horrified imagination's attention is the fact that it was created to crack deliberately - not fall apart, jut show cracking effect that does not harm the structure, according to Mashable.

Terror-stricken tourists held on to their lives as glass panels began shattering with each step, while being 3,800 feet in the sky.

Screaming as he clutched to the edge of the wall, the tour guide seemingly had no idea it was just a prank.
