    An Australian woman is suing Sydney Aquarium after a giant exhibition tank exploded, showering her with glass - and sharks.
    The accident left Hazel Swinden, 61, in chest-high water with a badly gashed ankle caused by flying debris.

    She claims to have suffered post-traumatic stress as a result.

    One moment Ms Swinden was admiring the reef sharks at Sydney Aquarium and the next she was surrounded by them with blood pouring from a deep cut.

    A glass tank had shattered, dumping thousands of litres of water on top of her.

    The woman's lawyer has told a Sydney court how she was submerged for several seconds and could feel the sharks brushing past her.
