Tank collapse

Holiday shoppers at a Chinese mall were caught in a real-life “Jaws” situation.

A huge shark tank holding 33 tons of water burst inside the Shanghai Orient Shopping Center, washing away deadly sharks into the mall. Its 5.9-inch thick glass broke, wounding 15 shoppers and killing the lemon sharks.

The CCTV camera captured as shoppers watched the tank when suddenly it burst. The lemon sharks surfed outside the tank and the shattered pieces of glass flew to shoppers, causing deep cuts and bruises.

The cause of the tank collapse is still under investigation.

The video has been viewed more than 68,000 times on YouTube.
