Woman Sues Over Shark Tank

One minute, she was admiring the sea life in a huge glass tank at the Sydney Aquarium. Seconds later, Perth visitor Hazel Swinden was on her back, surrounded by sharks and fearing for her life. Mrs Swinden, 61, yesterday told the court of the dramatic moment in February 1997 when a 12,500-litre tank exploded as she stood in front of it, showering her with glass, saltwater and sharks. She claims she now suffers flashbacks and post traumatic stress disorder, and was forced to give up her job as a Myer sales assistant because of leg injuries she received from shattered glass. And yet I still feel more sympathy for the sharks — via Andrew
