Tourists injured after rockfall at popular Greek beach

Cliff collapse on Greece's 'shipwreck beach' injures tourists

At least seven people were injured when sections of sheer cliff collapsed on to a popular beach on Greek island of Zakynthos.

Also known as "shipwreck beach", the cove is only accessible by sea, and is famous for the wreckage of a small cargo ship that has been washed up on the beach since the '80s.

Their injuries were not life-threatening, fire brigade and coast guard officials said.

Josh O'Connell, 21, of Kilkenny, Ireland, who works for a tour company on Zante, said there were more than a dozen tourist boats in the bay and 400-500 people in the area.

A government statement said a 34-year-old Czech woman had been hospitalised with a fractured vertebra, while her husband and two children sustained light injuries.

As a result, Florence "is expected to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", Sept. 13, said the NHC . As Hurricane Florence barrels toward the East Coast this week, the federal government wants gun dealers to prepare.

Seven people were injured, with one woman suffering back injuries.

Video footage shows beach-goers running in panic as part of a cliff peels off the rock wall at the end of Navagio beach, tumbling to the sand.

O'Connell described the piece of rock that fell as being as big as a four-storey building, crashing down onto the beach.

Imagine the worst beach trip you possibly can.

The coastguard later called off their search, saying everyone who had travelled to the beach on the tourist boats had been accounted for.
