A shark tank that was once housed inside the Shanghai Orient Shopping Center in Shanghai, China, shattered last week, sending 33 tons of water and three lemon sharks flooding into the Chinese mall.
According to local media in Shanghai, the ank's 5.9-inch acrylic glass cracked, then burst inside the Shanghai shopping center, injuring 15 shoppers and killing the three sharks. Most of those injured suffered "deep cuts and bruises" because of flying glass, a police spokesman told digital news outlet Gizmodo.
A video captured by CCTV cameras shows the Dec. 19 break at the Shanghai Orient Shopping Center, where the aquarium was installed two years ago.
Gizmodo also reported that the shopping center has announced it is planning to rebuild the popular attraction. Deadspin, however, quoted a spokesman for the mall as saying "they are not going to build an aquarium again in the future."
