33-Ton Shark Tank Breaks Inside Chinese Mall, Hilarty Does Not Ensue (15 People Injured, All Sharks Dead)
As proof you shouldn't always go with the lowest bidding contractor, a giant shark tank holding 33-tons of water recently broke inside a Chinese shopping mall, injuring 15 patrons and killing all the sharks. So, what was it -- shoddy craftsmanship, or a shark escape gone wrong? Dum dum dum!
According to local media, three lemon sharks surfed the water explosion into the shopping mall when the 5.9-inch (15 centimeters) acrylic glass bursted, as you can see in this video captured by CCTV cameras. Most of the people watching the tank were injured with "deep cuts and bruises," according to a police spokesman:
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.
Six-inch thick glass? I do NOT want a piece of that flying at me. As a matter of fact, I don't want a piece of anything flying at me besides candy. You could throw candy at me all day long. Except when I'm napping, then it's sort of a 'Please do not tap on glass' kind of situation. "Did you really just...?" BRING THIS ARTICLE FULL CIRCLE? Damn yeah I did! *struttin' that ass so hard my butthcheeks catch fire*
Hit the jump for a news report and several more shots but WARNING: sad dead sharks.
