Sharks? First floor, next to Cinnabon. It happened in a mall in Shanghai, China on Saturday, when a giant, 33-ton display aquarium filled with sharks suddenly burst and sent water flooding onto shoppers, injuring 15 people and resulting in the death of seven sharks.

Other sharks were seen shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

A similar story from Jan., 2011, in which an aquarium at a Kuwati shopping mall was said to have burst, turned out to be a hoax.

    “Not only did those sharks survive, but they can be seen in the photo heading over to Bed, Bath and Beyond.”
