ORLANDO (CBSMiami) — A fish tank burst at a Downtown Disney restaurant Monday, sending water flying into the dining room at the T-Rex Cafe.

Restaurant employees came to the quick rescue of the marine life inside the circular tank by scooping up fish in a net.

Landry’s, the Houston company that owns T-Rex Cafe, issued this statement: “A seal failed on the tank causing water to leak. Employees took action and did a great job rescuing all of the marine life, caring for our guests and managing the situation. The marine life has been moved to holding tanks and the restaurant is open for business as usual.”

Kate Wallace, 28, of San Diego and her family were sitting about 20 feet from the tank when she heard a loud sound of water pouring out in a stream. She quickly took video of the scene as the water gushed out of the tank.
