A grandmother and her grandson are uninjured after her car fell in a sinkhole in a Cooper City McDonald’s parking lot Thursday afternoon.

The sinkhole was caused by a water main break in the parking lot.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles tweeted photos that show the front left side of the vehicle — a Toyota SUV — engulfed in the sinkhole near the drive-thru at the McDonald’s located at 10260 Griffin Rd. in the Pine Lake Plaza.

The woman and her 4-year-old grandson escaped the vehicle unharmed.

The City of Cooper City tweeted that there was a busted water main in the parking lot and advised people to avoid the area.
