Navagio is one of the island's main attractions, with the beach featuring a shipwreck on the shore.

A landslide at a beach on the Greek tourist island of Zakynthos has been caught on camera.

Their injuries were not life-threatening, fire brigade and coast guard officials said. While so far, no one has been found, they said they were continuing their search.

Dairy products could actually give you a surprising health benefit
There were no noteworthy connections between myocardial infarction and dairy intake (HR 0.89, 95% CI 0.71-1.11; P=0.163). But dairy contains many other components which may be healthy, such as amino acids, vitamin K, calcium, and magnesium.

Authorities were seeking to determine whether there were any people missing.

A section of a cliff fell onto a popular secluded beach on the western Greek island of Zakynthos Thursday, injuring seven people, including a woman who suffered a spinal injury, authorities said. The woman's husband and two children were hospitalized with minor injuries. According to the Associated Press, the incident began when a large chunk of limestone fell from a cliff into the ocean, creating a large wave that caused several small boats to capsize.

Witnesses on the beach said there were three boats with passengers in the area during the landslide.

Lynette Bridges, 58, said her tour boat had just pulled up on Zante's Shipwreck Beach when an enormous sheet of stone crashed into the sea, capsizing boats and flooding the crowded sands.
