JIAOZUO, CHINA – Do you have a fear of high places?

Then you really might want to avoid China’s new glass walking bridge that’s about 3,500 feet in the air.

That’s about 35 stories.

Tourists who aren’t afraid of heights were having a good time checking out the bridge at Yuntai Mountain Scenic Spot until a loud bang rang out when one of the panes cracked.

That sent tourists screaming and running for safety.

A crack in one of the panes turned up during an inspection. A staff member at the park says someone dropped a thermos, a really heavy thermos, apparently.

The folks who built this bridge might want to double check the rest of the glass, because no one wants this to turn out to be the great fall of China.
