Default What just happened to my brakes?

There I was minding my own business with my foot on the brake in a diner parking lot, when all of a sudden the brake pedal gets real soft and drops darn near to the floor of my 1993 Ranger, with the 4.0 liter V-six and only just turned 100,000 miles 2 weeks ago. The pedal got even lower till I got it home about 2 miles away. What exactly happened there?

Sudden loss of vacuum pressure? Blown brake line? Are there any leaks?

Sounds like a master cylinder issue.

No visible leaks. Must be the master cylinder. Thanks.
Edit: Turns out there is a broken line at left rear above the axle. Starting to wish is was the master cylinder. Would be easier to get to.
