One injured after rockfall at pristine beach in Zakynthos

A cliff collapsed in Greece at a popular beach on the western island of Zakynthos, resulting in injuries, while coast guard officials were seeking to determine whether there were any people missing.

One of the Ionian island's main attractions, Navagio has a shipwreck on the shore and is surrounded by steep cliffs.

Lynette Bridges, 58, from Horndon-on-the Hill in Essex, said her tour boat had just pulled up to the popular Shipwreck Beach when an enormous sheet of stone crashed into the sea, capsizing boats and flooding the crowded beach.

Seven people were injured, with one woman suffering back injuries. She was hospitalised together with her husband and two children, who suffered minor injuries.

As reported by the Evening Standard, Josh O'Connell, 21, of Kilkenny, Ireland works for a local tour company and described the terrifying scene.

"There was a rumble and a rock fell, followed by a larger rock and then another". Meanwhile, some boats were capsizing in the strong waves.

Imagine the worst beach trip you possibly can.

The coast guard said later that those who had headed to the beach on tourist boats had all been accounted for.

According to a Reuters report, authorities said no one was missing as result of the rockslide but they were conducting a search as a precaution, in case people were trapped under the rocks.

The beach is also known as Shipwreck Beach.
