VIDEO: New glass-bottomed bridge opens in China


If you’re afraid of heights, video of a new bridge in China might give you chills.

The newest glass-bottomed suspension bridge opened in Benxi City this weekend.

The bridge is the length of about four football fields and sits more than 500 feet off the ground. It stretches over a canyon between two cliffs.

The thick glass allows anyone walking across the bridge to get a clear view of everything below, showing just how high up they are.

More than 10,000 people showed up for the opening. There are dozens of similar transparent walkways across the country.
