In Longjing, China, a man was rescued from a glass-bottom bridge after some panels shattered underneath him.

The Guardian reported that on Friday, a gust force wind damaged several glass panels on the walkway of the Piyan Mountain bridge, which left the tourist clinging to the rails.

According to CNN, gusts reportedly hit 93 miles per hour before the man was rescued on the 330 feet high bridge by rescue teams at 1:20 p.m.

In a statement to CNN, officials said there were no casualties, and the man was kept for observation at a hospital before being discharged.
