Just two weeks after its grand opening, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon glass bridge in China has been closed and no re-opening date of the bridge has yet been announced.

Before its opening, the officials ran a successful campaign to prove that the bridge was safe for use, even inviting Dan Simmons from BBC to swing hammers at the glass bridge.
