Huge aquarium in Berlin bursts, resulting in fish dying and two people being injured
A 46-foot-high aquarium in Berlin burst Friday morning, resulting in the death of multiple fish and injuring two people.
"In addition to the unbelievable maritime damage (...) two people were injured by glass splinters," Berlin police tweeted.
Investigators as of Friday after had yet to determine what caused the incident.
Berlin Mayor Franziska Giffey says that about 1 million liters (264,000 gallons) leaked from the aquarium known as the AquaDom.
The incident occurred at about 5:50 a.m. local time, a fire department spokesman told CNN.
A guest staying in a hotel next to the aquarium told Reuters the situation was chaotic.
"Just chaos," the guest said. "The whole aquarium burst and what's left is total devastation. Lots of dead fish, debris. It is quite a drama."
