Intense footage shows rockslide on popular Greek beach, sending waves of damage

At least seven people were injured Thursday after a section of a cliff collapsed on Navagio beach, also known as Shipwreck Beach, narrowly missing a family sitting on the sand and capsizing at least two small vessels.

Tourists board a boat at the beach Navagio following a rockfall, on the island of Zakynthos, Greece September 13, 2018.

According to BBC News, at least seven people were injured.

Footage of the incident, which took place at Navagio Beach on the isle of Zakynthos, shows tourists fleeing as the large sheet of rock breaks away from the cliff face.

Another six people, including two children, had received treatment for minor injuries, a hospital official in Zakynthos told Reuters.
