(Scroll down for video) Shoppers were suddenly showered with live sharks and tons of water, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

In the video below, you will see the shocking moment a glass tank holding 33 tons of water with sharks suddenly exploding, leaving 15 people injured by fragments of broken glass.

The aquarium tank was an attraction at the entrance to the Shanghai Orient Shopping Center in China, when it broke without warning.

Eight of the injured were customers and the rest were clerks and security personnel. They mostly suffered deep cuts and bruises from the glass.

A police spokesperson said: "There were a lot of injuries caused by broken glass, some of them serious because the glass was so thick. We're investigating what caused this."

Three lemon sharks, turtles and dozens of smaller fish, which were housed in the aquarium, were also victims of the accident.

In the video below, you can see that most people were standing near the tank when it exploded. Shoppers fled in panic as glass fragments gave way, flooding the mall entrance.
