A section of a new glass-bottomed walkway at Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in Henan Province, China, cracked at around 5 p.m. Monday afternoon, causing the tourists on it to understandably freak out.
Lee Dong Hai, a tourist who was on the walkway, posted on the social media site Weibo: "I was almost at the end and suddenly I heard a sound. My foot shook a little. I looked down and I saw that there was a crack in the floor."
The walkway is suspended at a height of about 1,080 meters, or 3,543 feet.
A spokesperson for the Yuntai Mountain tourism bureau told People's Daily Online that the cracks occurred after a tourist dropped a stainless steel mug on the walkway. Only one of a total of three layers of glass broke, so the tourists were not in danger, the spokesperson said.
The explosion reportedly occurred at the Tianjin Binhai New Development Zone at about 23:30 (15:30 GMT).
Pictures and video footage shared on social media suggest a number of people were wounded by the blast.
Several nearby tower blocks are without power, according to the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV.
At this time, most of what is known has come out of social media, with hundreds of people posting the devastating event and its aftermath in the city, which lies southeast of the country's capital Beijing.
China is fighting the good fight against nature - doing everything it can to keep Winter at bay.
To help battle the blues, the city of Changchun in China is installing plastic sheeting with pictures of lush, green shrubbery around the edge of the street, hiding all of the real plants which are now brown and bare.
"Many people feel depressed in the winter, and the site of the denuded trees only contributes to that feeling," said a local official. "We want to try and cheer people up a bit by putting some greenery around to make them feel better."
Thousands of meters of the plastic sheeting were rolled out this week, and if they're lucky, plastic flowers may be on the way as well. Seriously.
Just don't bother stopping to smell these roses.
