Volvo SUV drives across glass bridge to prove its safety
According to Mashable, the owners of the bridge are understandably eager to prove to tourists that the bridge is completely safe. To that end, the park organized a number of public safety showcases to prove the bridge's sturdiness and safety. The latest showcase involved both sledgehammers and a fully loaded Volvo XC90.
First, the showcase organizers invited twenty volunteers to attack one of the glass panels with sledgehammers. Once they were fitted with safety harnesses and properly tied off, the volunteers had a whack at the glass. The top layer of glass developed a matrix of fine cracks, but no real structural damage was caused. Then, to really drive the point home, organizers ran a black Volvo XC90 loaded with eleven passengers across the bridge without incident. The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Bridge is scheduled to open in July.
