Dramatic Moment Landslide Hits Famous Greek Beach

A tourist was injured on Thursday following a landslide at the world-renowned beach of Navagio in the Greek island of Zakynthos.

He was transferred to the Zakynthos General Hospital, while an emergency team from the local Fire Brigade (EMAK) is searching under fallen rocks for other possible victims.

According to owners of private boats in the area, there were three boats with passengers in the area during the landslide.

“We heard a sound and a small part of the rock fell, then a second one, and finally a third and large piece dropped in the sea, creating turbulence that overturned the boats,” a witness told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

There were many tourists with children at the beach who were evacuated on boats.

Navagio Beach, or Shipwreck Beach, was named after a shipping vessel known as the Panagiotis crashed on the scenic shore in 1983.

It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Zakynthos and Greece.
