FIU campus aquarium bursts, fish saved
Incident occurred inside the Graham Center on FIU's main campus
SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. – A seemingly quiet day of study at Florida International University was thrown into a frenzy Thursday morning after an aquarium suddenly burst, dumping its inhabitants upon the smooth floors of an on-campus building, WPLG reports.
FIU student Katherine Bolt said things began to flounder during morning classes inside the Graham Center.
"I hear a pop," Bolt said. "I look to my left and see that a tank burst and all the water, rocks and fish were spilling out."
Bolt added that after the initial burst, a group of students did the grunt work and returned the fish to a safe environment.
When contacted by WPLG, FIU officials said they were aware of the incident.
