The incident took place at Jurassic Coast in Dorset’s West Bay. The Dorset Council UK took to Twitter to share a video of the incident. “Rockfalls and landslips can happen at any time. These people had a lucky escape. The South West Coast Path above the cliff at West Bay is currently closed. Thanks to Daniel Knagg for the footage,” they wrote as they shared the video.

The clip opens to show a few people roaming around on a beach near a cliff. Within moments, a section of the cliff collapses. As the big chunk comes crashing towards the ground, the beachgoers quickly move out of the way. Finally, the portion falls where the people were standing moments ago.

“These people had a lucky escape… we urge people to stay away from the edge of the cliff top, stay away from the base of cliffs. If you are under a rock fall, the likelihood is you will die,” Dorset Council said in a statement, reports the Yahoo News.
