SHANGHAI -- A 33-ton aquarium housing sharks, turtles and fish suddenly shattered at a shopping center in Shanghai last week.

Sixteen people were injured in the accident, which happened Dec. 18. Three lemon sharks and dozens of turtles and small fish were killed.

Officials still don't know what caused the tank's 6-inch thick acrylic glass to shatter.

The shopping center said it has no plans to rebuild the aquarium.
