Two friends drinking coffee at Starbucks have avoided death a few centimeters after a window fell about 30 feet and slammed straight at their table.
Mr. Qian and his companion sat on an outside terrace of a Starbucks store in Shanghai when the accident occurred on Saturday.
Neither of the men was injured, but Mr. Qian said he was mentally ill and intended to sue the coffee chain and the mall where it is located.
CCTV footage shows Mr. Qian and his friend sitting in the outdoor area of the Starbucks in a shopping mall in Putuo district in Shanghai before the window falls
The two men jump away quickly while the window falls at high speed and crashes onto their table
CCTV images show Mr. Qian and his friend sitting outside on the seating area of the Starbucks in the Putuo District of Shanghai when the window falls from above.
The two men both look up in the middle of the conversation and jump away from the table while the tinted window falls down at high speed, collides with their table and strikes their coffee on the floor.
In the video, the couple remain astonished while other Starbucks customers gather to inspect the window, which appears to have remained intact after the collision.
With a local reporter, Mr. Qian said he heard a worker pushing the window before it fell
The Starbucks store is part of a three-storey shopping mall, which is located below a 30-storey hotel
Mr. Qian told the Shanghai-based news center The newspaper: & # 39; An employee pushed open the window and it fell.
& # 39; It must not have been installed properly, or there was a defect. & # 39;
The man added: & # 39; We have cheated death. We are terrified, psychologically signed.
& # 39; Our requirements are very simple: [the mall must] make improvements to protect the consumer, and formally apologize. & # 39;
The Starbucks chain is part of a three-story shopping center called 100 AM, which is located directly below a five-star hotel with 30 floors.
Photos claim that the window on the second floor of the building was installed about 30 feet from the ground.
Qian said he intended to take legal action against the mall and against Starbucks.
