Sixteen people were injured by chunks of 10 inch thick glass and an enormous wave of water, when the shark tank in a Shanghai, China shopping mall suddenly burst onto shoppers.

The two year old tank at the Orient Shopping Center contained sharks, turtles and a variety of fish, and was captured on video as it gave way under the pressure of water inside. According to the BBC, the tank may have broken due to a combination of low temperatures and weak materials.

According to Chinese media, the injured had a variety of cuts and bruises. Several had to be rescued from under debris falling down, as can be seen in the video. At least three lemon sharks, some sea turtles and a variety of small fish were killed in the accident.
