CHINA SHANGHAI TOWER GLASS WALL FALL

CHINA SHANGHAI TOWER GLASS WALL FALL

A piece of glass is missing on the curtain wall of the Shanghai tower after it fell from the 76th floor of the skyscraper in the Lujiazui Financial District in Pudong, Shanghai, China, 9 May 2016. A piece of curtain wall glass fell from the 76th floor of the Shanghai Tower in Lujiazui Monday (9 May 2016) morning, injuring a motorist on the ground, said the building's management company, which blamed workers for the mishap. The glass dropped from the southeast side of the building when workers with the Shenyang Yuanda Aluminum Industry Engineering Co, supplier of the building's curtain wall, were replacing damaged glass, the Shanghai Tower said in a statement. The glass fell at around 10:45am, shattering on the ground beside a driver who was getting out of his car on Pudong's Dongtai Road. He was taken to hospital with foot injuries. The mishap occurred when workers who had just cut the 200-kilogram piece of glass handed it to other team members, said Xu Yangchuan, project manager with Shenyang Yuanda. "The glass was well-wrapped during the operation and it is still unclear why it fell," he told the xinmin.cn. The building has suspended all glass replacement work until the exact cause of the accident has been established, the building company said.(Imaginechina via AP Images)
