COOPER CITY, Fla. – A grandmother and her young grandson got more than they bargained for at a Cooper City McDonald's on Thursday afternoon.

The two were approaching the restaurant drive-thru at 10260 Griffin Road when their vehicle was swallowed by a small sinkhole in the parking lot.

The woman and 4-year-old boy were uninjured and able to escape the vehicle.

Pictures showed the front left side of the SUV almost fully engulfed in the hole.

It's believed that a water main break nearby caused the sinkhole
