Glass bridge in China – level 2
In China, people erected a bridge with a glass bottom and invited other people to hit it with sledgehammers to test its strength.
This really took some courage because the bridge is 300 metres above the ground. However, these people were harnessed to the side of the bridge.
An Israeli architect is behind this project and he says that this bridge is the largest glass bridge in the world.
Difficult words: erect (build), sledgehammer (a large, heavy hammer), harnessed (in a set of straps for protection).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
