Shark tank explodes in Shanghai mall

&feature=player_embedded

CCTV footage has captured the moment a 33-ton shark tank burst in the middle of a shopping centre.

Shoppers in the mall in Shanghai, China were showered with glass when the aquarium shattered, sending sharks and fish out.

Three sharks and dozens of turtles and small fish were killed in the incident, while more that 16 people were injured.

It is unknown how the tank broke and police have opened an investigation to find out what happened.

1. They were trying out their frikkin laser beams and got careless.

Now they'll never get jobs from A-lister Mad Scientists.

Now that Disney has bought Star Wars, maybe they can get jobs as Imperial Stormtroopers. They have the precision for it.

2. Guy photographs a struggling turtle with his iPhone at the end of the clip

Assholism. It's global.

There are accidents like this waiting to happen all over China. Bribe the right official, ignore the building code, to the extent that there even is one.

8. Thats how people make it in China: Bribe someone.

I was even told my former boss there may have bribed a government official to waive some paperwork for my Visa extension. I almost didn't get it. Jerks.

6. If it's Made in China, it's gotta be cheap

Even the shark tank couldn't hold up.

If the work were done by union labor, they'd still have a tank.

9. Kind of sad

That China's communist revolution was supposed to bring about a workers paradise. Almost like creating one giant union where workers always had the last say. But as the turds rose up to float on top it turned into a toilet bowl oligarchy.
