Patrons in a restaurant at Jem shopping mall were drenched after a water pipe in the ceiling burst, releasing a torrent of black-coloured water.
The incident occurred at around 8.45pm yesterday, Jun 4.
A woman, Sandra, who was dining at the restaurant sent photos and an account of the incident to citizen journalism website Stomp.
In en email, she said: "After the pipe burst, black-coloured water gushed out and drenched a pregnant lady sitting directly below the burst pipe. Her husband was also drenched.
"The pregnant lady let out a horrified scream and they were both stunned for a few minutes. Her husband then pulled her away from the table."
She said that restaurant staff were quick to respond and quickly stepped forward to help, and a cleaner arrived shortly after.
"The smell from the black-coloured water was like disgusting and many patrons left immediately without paying their bills," she added.
