A LANDSLIDE at a beach on the Greek tourist island of Zakynthos has been caught on camera.
Local media said witnesses reported that a large rock initially fell from a cliff into the sea at Navagio Beach, or Shipwreck Beach, on the northwestern coast of the island, creating a large wave that capsized small boats.
None of the injuries sustained in the incident on Thursday afternoon are believed to be life-threatening.
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". According to the reports, six people were slightly injured including two children. O'Connell described the chaos, with families scrambling to rush to safety on the boats in the bay.
While now, no one is missing, the coastguard called in helicopters and boats to search the area, in case anyone was trapped under the rocks. (Supplied) Small boats at the beach were capsized as a result of the fall sparking big waves.
Imagine the worst beach trip you possibly can.
Authorities shut down access to the beach, which lies at the foot of a 200-metre (650-foot) cliff and is accessible only by boat, as a precaution.
The beach is also known as Shipwreck Beach.
