SHANGHAI, China -- A 30-ton aquarium housing sharks, turtles, and fish suddenly collapsed onto a crowd of people in China, and it was all caught on video.

The tank in the Shanghai shopping mall had six-inch thick acrylic glass – officials still don’t know what caused it to shatter.

16 people were injured during the incident last week, but are expected to be okay. Three lemon sharks and dozens of turtles and small fish were killed.

The shopping center says it does not plan to rebuild the aquarium.
