Surveillance footage captures the moment a 100 foot wide and 30 foot deep sinkhole swallows a soccer field in Alton, Illinois.

The footage shows bleachers and a light pole getting completely swallowed by the sinkhole at Gordon Moore Park.

According to local reports, the sinkhole was caused by an underground mine owned by New Frontier Materials.

Thankfully, no one was injured.

“No one was injured in the incident, which has been reported to officials at the Mine Safety Health Administration in accordance with applicable regulations,” said a New Frontier Materials rep.

“Safety is our top priority. We will work with the city to remediate this issue as quickly and safely as possible to ensure minimal impact on the community.”
