This is insane.....

How weren't more people injured?

Edited to add: Just listening to Radio 4 and the woman who fell on the tracks at a tube station in London. Bloody hell. Two trains went through the station while she was on the tracks. And I thought I had a bad day yesterday as the clip holding a windscreen wiper on the car broke.

    On its website on Friday it said the attraction was temporarily closed and asked visitors to reschedule their tickets.

    Temporarily closed? :/

    That’s a lot of dead fish hanging around the city as well. It must have looked like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster when it exploded.

    ...I wonder how many people turn up to SeaLife centres in full diving gear after reading that?.....
    Apparently some water was running down the road outside the hotel as well. Surf's up. I bet a Ford Capri would surf well.

    @steveTu Thankfully the tank burst at 5.50 am so there would be few people around.  A few hours later would have been a very different outcome.

    Many years ago we were sat in a pub minding our own business when a number of members of the traveller community, who had some kind of beef with the landlord, came in to discuss things in their usual way.  The pub had 3 large fish tanks.  Had being the operative word after these 'gentlemen' threw chairs through them all.

    That's what I thought @pansyface.

    The article doesn't even mention the fate of the fish .... I hope they managed to save a few.
