Landslide on Greek island beach injures three

Tourists injured after rockfall at pristine beach in Greece's Zakynthos

At least seven people were injured when part of a cliff face broke away at the popular Navagio beach on the Greek island of Zakynthos, officials say.

There were no people missing but authorities had air and sea assets in the area and were conducting a search as a precaution, in case people were trapped under the rocks, one official said. A female tourist was lightly injured and taken to a local hospital.

Navagio is one of the island's main attractions, with the beach featuring a shipwreck on the shore.

A section of a cliff fell onto a popular secluded beach on the western Greek island of Zakynthos Thursday, injuring seven people, including a woman who suffered a spinal injury, authorities said.

Video footage of the incident shows people running in panic as a large sheet of rock fell off the rock wall. The rock was so large, it caused a small tsunami, with large waves crashing onto the beach.

Her husband and two children were hospitalised with minor injuries.

British woman Wendy Thorpe said she was on a boat with her daughter when the cliff collapsed and there was an "almighty crash".
