BBC News - Aquarium bursts in shopping centre in Shanghai

Sixteen people have been hurt after an aquarium burst at a shopping mall in Shanghai.

The thirty-three tonne tank which housed sharks, turtles and fish shattered without warning at the city's Orient shopping centre on 18 December.

The explosion destroyed a nearby cosmetics counter where one worker had to be pulled to safety.

The tank was installed just two years ago but investigators say a combination of low temperatures and weak materials caused the catastrophic collapse.

Three lemon sharks and dozens of turtles and small fish were killed in the incident.

If it would have been Japan, the sushi restaurants would have been in luck.

The wall of the tank flattened that one poor girl. Ouch.
