Window falls 76 floors from Shanghai Tower, injures Tesla driver.

Mere weeks into its much-anticipated soft opening, China's tallest building, the Shanghai Tower has had its first freak accident.

On Monday, a glass window pane weighing a whopping 200kg fell from the 76th floor of the 632-metre skyscraper and nearly hit a Tesla parked below on Dongtai Road.

The driver of the Tesla was just exiting the car when the window plummeted down. Luckily for all, the driver narrowly escaped being hit directly and was sent to the local hospital to be treated for glass shards in his leg.

According to People's Daily, workers were replacing a damaged window when the incident occurred.

Following the incident, Shanghai Tower has posted a statement on their official Weibo account addressing safety concerns and the driver's injuries.

It said: "With regards to the window incident which took place at 10.45 a.m. yesterday, the damaged glass window fell on the road and its shards hit the driver's foot as he was getting out of his car. The injured was rushed to the hospital and is being treated for left ankle soft tissue contusion.

"We apologise for any public and social consequences caused by this accident and will further strengthen safety management and take stringent precautions to ensure safety."

A project manager with Shenyang Yuanda, Xu Yangchuan, told reporters: "The glass was well-wrapped during the operation and it is still unclear why it fell."

A spokeswoman for the Shanghai Tower has confirmed that all glass replacement work is being suspended until the incident has been investigated and the exact cause established.

All glass repair work for the Shanghai Tower has been suspended.

The Shanghai Tower was in construction for eight years before it completed in mid 2015. However, the building — currently the second tallest in the world — remained closed for unreported reasons until March this year.

Currently, only the annex and basement of the building is open to the public. An official opening date is slated for later this year.
