Zakynthos- Famous shipwreck of Navagio Beach at risk of collapse

Zakynthos shipwreck garbage

Seismologist Gerasimos Papadopoulos expressed his concern about the famous shipwreck at Navagio beach in Zakynthos and shared images of tourists crowded by the hundreds under the steep rocks in a Facebook post.

As he said, attaching the relevant photos, "hundreds of tourists are transported en masse and crowded right under the hanging vertical slopes. With an earthquake they will collapse.'

"But even without an earthquake, as happened about 4 years ago, when part of the slope - fortunately small - collapsed, causing a local tsunami and visitors ran in panic to save themselves," added Papadopoulos, recalling the incident that happened in September 2018.

Wanting, in fact, to emphasise the urgency of his appeal, Gerasimos Papadopoulos wrote: "next time it won't be fortunately but unfortunately. I didn't go down, I didn't want to participate in such an 'experience'."
