Dec. 27 (UPI) -- And you thought your holiday shopping experience was bad. Shoppers at Shanghai's Orient Shopping Center were caught by surprise when a 33.5-ton aquarium filled with 11 to 15 inch sharks burst open last week, according to local media reports.

Customers, shop assistants and security staff were among the injured

"We will not build an aquarium again in the future," said a mall management official, Chen Yongping.
