Outdoor High School Basketball Court Collapses

Cracks formed this week in a large circle across two courts at the Huntington Park school

An outdoor basketball court at a Southern California high school might take months to repair after it collapsed due to a problem with a water collection basin.

A circular pattern of cracks formed in the surface across two courts this week at Marquez High School in Huntington Park. The collapse was caused by a problem with a man-made water collection basin, according to the school district.

Repairs will likely require months, according to the district. The area, used for physical education classes, was fenced off.
