A large sinkhole created a roadblock on the city's South Side Thursday.

A resident near 73rd and Union said her son noticed the ground was a bit soft about two days ago. On Thursday they found a gaping hole.

The sinkhole swallowed a lawn chair left on the street to save a parking spot and sent water spewing from a pipe.

Police blocked off the street.
