(CLOVERDALE, Ore.) — A famous rock formation was reduced to rubble when hikers appeared to topple it intentionally in a new video.
The sandstone formation, once standing overlooking the coast in Cloverdale, Oregon, is now in pieces.
Park officials at Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area originally believed it had collapsed naturally until drone video surfaced showing a group of people trying to knock down the famous formation.
David Kalas, one of the men who flew the drone, said the hikers believed the formation was “a safety hazard” despite it being protected behind a fence with warning signs.
“They basically told me themselves that it was a safety hazard and that they did the world or Oregon a favor, that they knocked it down,” he said.
Park officials and state police said they are investigating the incident and the accused vandals have not yet been found.
