World's End to get glass box to keep visitors safe?

Of late, several accidents were reported from the popular tourist spot - 'World's End' located in Horton Plains, with some ending fatally.

The most recent incident ended in a similar tragedy when a German national fell to her death at World's End.

Since then, authorities have been taking safety issues at the location in a serious manner. As a result, a team from the University of Moratuwa is looking into the feasibility of installing a glass box in the location where visitors can admire the view while being quite safe.

Speaking, Mr. P.K.P.M. Pradeep Kumara, who is the Warden of Horton Plains National Park has said that countries like China and Japan follow safety measures as such at risky locations like this.
