Dubai's 30-inch Thick Shark Tank Is Leaking

The shark-filled aquarium at the Dubai shopping centre, full of 33,000 sea creatures and 7.5 million litres of water, has sprung a leak through its 30-inch acrylic walls. This won't end well! Update: now with video!

The leak had people wading out of the shopping centre. A representative for Dubai's civil defence force said they've got the situation under control and are fixing the problem, but I wouldn't want to be the first one back down in that tunnel.

So how long do you think it's going to be until they can't afford to keep up all this ridiculous shit they've built and the entire thing turns into a post-apocalyptic wasteland with lawless bandits scavenging for all of the luxury items no one is around to pay for? Should be exciting! [NY Times]

Oh, and if you're wondering what the tank looked like before, Getty Images has us covered.
