I was walking back from lunch (and that's another story), crossing the street at Madison & Dearborn (that's me in the crosswalk up there), I heard a CRACK and looked up and back to where the sound came from. And what I saw was glass raining down onto the corner where I'd just been standing. The newspaper guy who usually sits at the center of the bull's eye up there caught it pretty good. Luckily, it looked like most of it was little cubes like safety glass, but I did see some hand sized bits land in the intersection (the little explosion cloud.)
And, "Yes", when I looked at the rain of glass, I was relieved not to see a body in the middle of it.
Here's your action new reporter getting a shot of the glass in the intersection:
I hung around for a few minutes, and no one seemed to be hurt. The cops and emergency people were there right away.
And then I called my wife after lunch and said, "Well, I'm not dead…"
She was not amused.
(Here is a short news story about it. It confirms that no one was really hurt.)
