And people are very sad to see it go, including Malta's prime minister, Joseph Muscat. He called the news "heartbreaking."

According to the Times of Malta, a 2013 study said erosion to the landmark was inevitable. But at the time, it wasn't in immediate danger of collapsing.

And last year, the government made walking across the natural bridge a crime.
