1814 London beer tsunami

Apparently, eight people died in London in 1814 by being drowned in a 25-foot beer tsunami. This happened when 20,000 tank of beer ruptured in a London brewery, flooding the nearby slum.



Some of the details are just bizarre. Wtf, London?

“Some relatives of the drowned took to exhibiting their families’ corpses in their homes and charging a fee for viewing.”

That’s better than the Boston Molasses Disaster
