Aquarium bursts in shopping centre in Shanghai 27 December 2012, Last updated at 04:38 ET 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.
