One person suffered critical injuries when the slab of rock and debris fell onto Grandview Surf Beach in Encinitas, north of San Diego, shortly before 3 p.m., Captain Larry Giles of the city’s Lifeguard Department said.

Another victim was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance, but the person’s condition was not immediately known. A third person sustained minor injuries but declined treatment, Giles said.

Soil experts were on site shortly after the tragic incident, hoping to make a recommendation regarding the stability of the dunes and bluffs surrounding the area.

Furthermore, police K-9 units and cadaver dogs were present, hoping to ensure that there are no unknown casualties of this event.
