COOPER CITY, FLA. (WSVN) - A water main rupture created a sinkhole at the entrance to a gated community in Cooper City, Saturday afternoon.

According to Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue, AT&T subcontractors were working near the entrance to the Biltmore Grove neighborhood, along the 5500 block of 106th Avenue, when they struck the water main, causing the sinkhole to appear.
