No one hurt when sheets of glass fall off downtown high-rise

FOUR sheets of curtain wall glass fell off a high-rise building in downtown Shanghai last night. Luckily, no one was hurt.

The accident occurred around 9:30pm when the four sheets of glass fell from a 30-floor apartment building in Jing'an District. Each sheet was about 2 square meters.

They smashed on the pavement of Yongyuan Road, a witness said. Part of the road was closed to traffic and authorities were investigating the cause.

People living in high-rises and their property management companies have been told to examine their curtain walls after a spate of falling-glass accidents in the city.
