How safe is the world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed suspension bridge? VIDEO

Tuesday, October 11, 2016 - China’s newest tourist attraction- a glass-bottomed suspension bridge is not for the faint hearted.

Dubbed the Haohan Qiao Bridge (Brave Men’s Bridge in English) , it spans the canyon between two mountain cliffs in Zhangjiajie park in China’s central Hunan province and is 430 metres long and suspended 300 metres above the earth - dwarfing America's Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The engineering marvel that can accommodate 800 people at a time is 6metres wide and made of 99 panels of clear glass.

To show how safe it is, BBC reporter Dan Simmons was challenged to smash his way through one of the panels used to form the skywalk.
