Shanghai China – Fifteen people were injured when a 33-ton shark aquarium at a Shanghai shopping center burst spilling gallons of water on unsuspecting shoppers. The 7 meter long, three meter high aquarium broke Tuesday December 18th. The collapse is being blamed by the combination of the weak materials of this shark tank and the cold temperature.

Eight shopping center workers and seven shoppers were injured when the shark tank exploded and scattered shards of glass up to 20 centimeters in size. All of those injured sustained cuts; one shopper suffered bone fractures and had to be sent to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

The three lemon sharks that were housed in the aquarium did not survive. The tank also held other fish and turtles.
