33 Ton Aquarium Bursts in Mall Showers Crowd With Sharks and Glass [Video – Photos]
Wow, the LAST place you’d expect to get attacked by a SHARK is in the MALL!
15 people were injured when a 33-TON aquarium, at the entrance of a shopping center in China, EXPLODED without warning! A crowd of people were standing in front of the tank when it shattered, flooding the front of the mall and injuring folks as flying SHEETS of super thick glass went in all directions.
Sadly three lemon sharks, as well as dozens of turtles and smaller fish, died as a result of the incident.
This isn’t the first problem with the two year old tank. In June, a ruptured water pipe led to the death of two sharks and required the removal of several turtles.
No official reason has been given for the tank’s rupture though several customers, at the mall, blamed the sudden drop in temperature for the explosion.
A spokesperson for the shopping center said they have no plans to reopen the aquarium.
