You know how kids like to bang on glass enclosures at zoos and aquariums, taunting the animals with their meaty cheeks pressed so close? Let this story be a warning to anyone who does this, because it turns out that crazy-thick glass can break.
Fifteen people were injured by flying marine life and glass shards in Shanghai recently when an enormous aquarium at a shopping mall burst.
Three lemon sharks and a squadron of fish and turtles died when the 34-ton tank's 10-inch-thick glass cracked and caused a mini oceanic explosion, sending people running in panic.
Police are investigating what caused the urban aqua drama; no word if the sea creatures (RIP) had plotted an escape.
