A Video Of What Transpired Went Viral
A seven-second video shows the vandals who tore down this ancient rock at Oregon’s Cape Kiwanda State Natural Park, which is home to the rock.
Imagine the terror if someone in the valley below had been traveling at the time. Getting slammed by a huge rock may be deadly. The footage was shot on a smartphone by a young tourist named David. At first, he was shocked by what he was witnessing.
His video captured the moment “they simply collapsed the boulder down,” and he remarked to reporters, “I was thinking you know they’re not going to knock down…this big rock.” This rock, while seemingly little, has a significant place in the park’s history.
