At least seven people were injured after part of a cliff overlooking Navagio Beach on the isle of Zakynthos came crashing to the sand.
A rock wall has peeled off the cliff face surrounding the popular Greek beach of Navagio injuring tourists. Greek authorities say a landslide at a popular beach on the western island of Zakynthos has resulted in at least one injury, while coast guard officials were seeking to determine whether there were any people missing.
Video footage of the moment showed the rock split and drop onto the shore, sending up a cloud of dust and speeding waves inland over the assorted tourists.
Another six people, including two children, had received treatment for minor injuries, a hospital official in Zakynthos told Reuters.
O'Connell described the piece of rock that fell as being as big as a four-storey building, crashing down onto the beach. He believed more were coming, so he started running.
"The water hit my feet with such force that it knocked me on to my back and covered over half of the beach". Meanwhile, some boats were capsizing in the strong waves.
"We haven't found any trapped people but we will continue searching", a spokesperson for the fire brigade said.
Imagine the worst beach trip you possibly can. Authorities later said everyone who had arrived at the beach on tourist boats had been accounted for.
The beach is also known as Shipwreck Beach.
