      Just seen this and I must admit I am quite shocked, to be able to walk into glass and it just shatter like that is quite bad.

      Video

      Hope the guy was OK.

      I've actually done that,the door had no markings on it whatsoever so was invisible.
      Ended up having my leg stitched up

      It is quite amazing after even all these years of having the same kind of incidents involving glass doors that they still make them the same way without markings or anything. I have known many people to walk into glass windows or doors that look like there is nothing there, haven't had the same problem with the window shattering but it still does some damage to the person who walks into it.

      When i was a kid, a friend of our family walked right through the sliding glass door on her patio. She was carrying a serving tray and accidentally raised her knee and it shattered the glass. She was moving very fast, so maybe that's why it happened. That was back when they used thin glass on patio doors. Poor girl! I think she was OK, just got some glass shards in her hair. Was OK other than that.

      Pheww poor guy! It must hurt like hell! He probably broke his nose by walking through the glass door.

      If you look closely, there is a horizontal marking along the glass. He didn't pay attention to where he was going because he had his heads down.

      It reminds me of those advertisements with the glass cleaner and the crows..

      Poor guy. And those other guys just walked up to him and walked away.. shocking...

      Ouch... That looked like it hurt. I've hit a glass door before, but never had one break like that. Poor guy.

      I hate to admit it, but I did something similar when I was a young teenager at the county fair! Went into the house of glass and thought I had found my way out and it wasn't! Boom.

      Ouch! The most I have ever seen was with my brother and we was leaving Morrisons (supermarket) and as we where walking into through the revolving doors (I think that is what they are called, the ones that spin around and you have to walk into them when the gap is free) he was walking, wasn't watching where he was going and bang into the glass near the exit after walking through.

      My thoughts exactly :) even after watching it now I still have the same reaction I did when I first saw it. Very painful indeed.
