First incident

The first incident happened in Tianjin, in the Jiu Shan Ding area, with a man attempting to cross over the bridge and losing consciousness.

He was then left dangling from the safety harness that was attached to him under the bridge, as three staff members rushed over to pull him to safety.

Second incident

The second incident saw a 10-year-old boy slipping out of his safety harness entirely, on the suspension bridge in the Enshi Grand Canton in Hubei.

A man was seen in the video trying to hold on to the boy by gripping his shirt, as the boy slid off the edge of the bridge.

The boy then slipped out of his shirt and fell, much to the horror of onlookers who screamed at the sight.

The boy managed to survive the fall, suffering fractures in his middle and lower spine, as well as suffering a few cuts on his head.
