Terrifying moment cliff collapses on Canary Islands beach as emergency declared

A massive shred of cliff collapsed on a beach in the Canary Islands, just a few meters from campers and caravans.

The terrible moment was captured on video and you can hear the audience scream as they watched in horror.

A serious emergency has been declared on the island of La Gomera due to the possibility that campers are trapped under the rubble.

It is said that the massive cloud of smoke caused by the collapse was visible for miles.

The emergency services rushed to the scene and dogs are looking for someone who could be caught.

A helicopter rescued five stranded people who were on the caravan site.

The dramatic incident occurred late Saturday afternoon on Argaga Beach in the popular resort of Valle Gran Rey.

The beach has closed as there are huge cracks in the cliffs and experts fear more of it could fall.

There have been reports of some hikers in the area, although no one has yet been reported missing.

The emergency operation will continue overnight and residents are asked to consider all members of their families.

La Gomera Island Government President Casimiro Curbelo said they were “optimistic” that there would be no casualties as there were small landslides in the area just before the collapse that resulted in people who were there being moved away.

Firefighters, the Red Cross, civil defense volunteers, the police, civil guards and mountain rescue services were brought in.
