Cape Kiwanda’s rock pedestal, known as the Duckbill, has been a famous Oregon landmark for decades. A recently released video appears to show a group of people knocking it over.
The Duckbill, a famous stone pedestal at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City, Oregon, has long been a favorite landmark for tourists to photograph. To the chagrin of the state parks department, the precarious-looking seven-foot-tall stone platform has also been a popular place to practice yoga poses or take wedding photos, even though the formation is fenced off from the public.
That local landmark collapsed last week. At first, parks officials thought it must have fallen over due to natural causes and the strain of people climbing on it. But they soon found out that the rock may have been pushed over—and there was a video that appeared to show this happening.
