Guests enjoying dinner at the T-REX Cafe in Walt Disney World in Florida got a wet surprise Monday evening when a massive fish tank sprung a leak and began spewing water. One of the diners captured the cellphone video above. 

As WFTV (Channel 9) reports, “The large, cylinder-shaped aquarium appeared to have cracked open down the side, causing water to gush out into the restaurant. In the video, restaurant employees can be seen moving guests away from the area.”
No word yet on what caused the incident, or the fate of the fish inside.
UPDATE, March 18: Fox News is reporting “A Disney spokeswoman called the leak small, saying that some fish were removed as a precaution . . . There were no were reported injuries from the incident. A person at the restaurant was told that the workers were able to save ‘all of the fish.’”
