OKLAHOMA CITY -- A water main broke Tuesday afternoon and flooded Crossroads Church on Shields Boulevard, forcing everyone inside to evacuate the building.

Water poured into rooms and flooded most of the building. About 50 workers and children from the church's school rushed outside to escape the rising water. SkyNews9 and pilot Mason Dunn flew over the scene and spotted water flowing from the building to the front and back parking lots.

Firefighters and emergency crews quickly arrived to try to shut off the water.  Crews said the flooding was so bad they were concerned the church's floors might collapse.
