Shark Tank Terror

croatiantimes.com

A giant shark-filled aquarium caused terror when it burst open in eastern China injuring 15 people with flying glass and fish.

Horrified passers by fled in panic when the 10 inch thick protective glass suddenly gave way, flooding the entrance of the Dongfang shopping mall in Shanghai.

Three lemon sharks and dozens of smaller fish and turtles perished when the 34 ton tank shattered without warning, say police.

The tank had become a local landmark since it was installed two years ago and every week a diver would swim with the sharks, feeding them by hand.

"There was no warning. Just a loud crack and it went. I've never been so scared," said one worker.

A police spokesman said: "There were lots of injuries caused by flying glass, some of them serious because the glass was so thick. We are investigating what caused this."
