Dubai Mall was evacuated on Thursday following a leak of its aquarium feature, which saw water ‘gushing’ out and shoppers wading through water.
“A leakage was noticed at one of the panel joints of the Dubai Aquarium at The Dubai Mall and was immediately fixed by the aquarium’s maintenance team,” said a short statement from Dubai Mall developer Emaar.
“The leakage did not impact the aquarium environment or the safety of the aquatic animals. The Dubai Aquarium works with international experts in aquarium management and upholds the highest safety standards in its management.”
