7 tourists injured as cliff collapses at popular Greek beach

At least one person was injured and boats capsized when sections of sheer cliff collapsed onto a popular beach on Greek island of Zakynthos on September 13, according to local media and eyewitnesses.

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

The 21-year-old, who works for a tour company on the island, said: "The rock that fell, oh gosh, it would be like a four storey building falling onto the beach".

At least seven people were injured after part of a cliff overlooking Navagio Beach on the isle of Zakynthos came crashing to the sand. As reported by Reuters, one Czech woman received injuries to her back and the coastguard transferred her to a local hospital [VIDEO].
