The undersea-motif at a cafe in Orlando's Downtown Disney resort was made a bit more believable yesterday as a large indoor fish tank burst, flooding the dining area and sending patrons scrambling.
"There was a lot of commotion. The whole section just sort of went crazy," Kate Wallace, who was sitting about 20 feet away from the tank, told the Orlando Sentinel. "The staff -- they were doing the best job that they could. It was craziness. Just kind of people freaking out. It's not something that you see very often. How do you respond to that?"
Another diner, Michael Pappas, said that waiters acted quickly, climbing inside the leaking tank to scoop out the fish, all of which are believed to have survived the incident unscathed.
