A large portion of Scarborough Bluffs collapsed on Sunday.

According to police, just before 4 pm, the popular beach and park saw a piece break off from the escapement near Lookout Point.

A video posted to Instagram, allegedly taken at the time of the collapse, shows a large cloud of dusk being blown across the beach. The person filming then zooms in on a large pile of debris that appears to have detached from the escarpment.

The Toronto Police Service said on Twitter that no one was injured.

After the collapse, people in the area reported an “explosion-like sound,” though Toronto Fire reportedly said it was a boulder.

Police are asking that boaters and bystanders stay clear of the area.
