Here’s what Huffington Post reported:

“As I looked below me, I realized that the glass panel had cracked,” a man named Li Donghai posted on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, after the incident, according to Shanghaist. “I’m not sure what caused the crack, but there were people screaming that very moment and I yelled, ‘It’s shattered! It’s really shattered!’ before pushing aside all the people in front of me to make my escape.”

See the video of the bridge here:
