At least seven people were injured Thursday during a massive rockfall at a beach in Greece.

According to Reuters.com, visitors at the popular Navagio beach on the island of Zakynthos were shocked as a huge sheet of rock fell from the wall of a cove and nearly landed on beachgoers.

Greek authorities said none of the injuries were life-threatening.

Officials said that no tourists in the area were reported missing, but air and sea rescue teams were sent to the island—known as Zante in Western Europe—to conduct a search as a precaution in case someone was trapped.

Video of the nearly fatal rockfall was captured and shared on Instagram:

At least two small boats were capsized in the surrounding waters due to high waves created by the falling rocks. As for the injuries, one woman as transferred to a local hospital and the other six people, including two children, received treatment on the scene for minor injuries.
