One dead, many injured as tourists fly down glass slide and smash into one another

A tourist has died and dozens of people have been injured in China after flying down 3,200ft glass-bottomed slide too fast in torrential rain.

The tragedy occurred when downpours led to tourists hurling themselves down the slide and striking each other at the bottom.

The slide was created as a quick way to descend a mountain in the Hugu Valley.

Footage shows dozens of people lying on the ground at the foot of the slide after the accident in Liaoning Province, north east China.

The condition of those being treated in hospital is said to be stable.

An official inquiry is under way.
