I wonder if the guy can still file some sort of a lawsuit against the building or developer for negligence or something(I'm clearly not a layer)? In any case that was a close call and that man is lucky to be alive and not seriously maimed/injured or worse.

^ This happens in Chicago in pretty much every wind event somewhere in the city and this was not the only piece of glass to break in the city during the windy conditions this week. A lot of times debris is picked up from an adjacent roof and breaks glass in a neighboring building. Or people leave windows open during windy conditions and the operable window blows out. This was one exterior lite of glass out of tens of thousands… relax

This wasn't a case where the wind damaged a piece of glass. The wind literally knocked out a panel of glass from the building and it came crashing down. That almost never happens, and is a concern of shoddy construction

^No, a piece of debris impacted the glass causing the exterior lite to break. People in the apartment and the valet for the building witnessed it. If this had happened on the west or north side, it would not have been news. This type of thing happens often in the city. There are glazing contractors whose whole business model is fixing this type of thing.

^^ Bombardier is right, the panel of glass did not fall out. It clearly shattered. If you watch the wgn video closely it's pretty evident.

Same happened with Willis a while back.

You're way more likely to be hit by falling ice anyway I imagine. Just another hazard of living in the big city.

I've never heard of glass falling from a skyscraper to be a common occurrence in any major city before. Especially not for a non-hurricane typical storm.

^ it's not an everyday occurrence or anything, but it does happen from time to time in cities across the world during strong wind events.

Just google "glass falling from skyscrapers". lots of stories from all over.

And that same windstorm a couple days ago also caused a glass pane to fall off of Milwaukee's Chase tower.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.fox...-milwaukee.amp


Maybe the winds softened a bit by the time that system got over to Michigan, but over here on this side of the lake, it was STUPID windy.

I recall the revolving door in the building I worked in downtown also 'exploded' during this windstorm.

Cat 1 Hurricane is only 74 mph. Winds definitely get higher than that, especially high up.

The John Hancock building in Boston takes the cake for falling out windows under construction

They were installing big trees in the planters and paver area south of the planters on Friday.
