Their injuries were not life-threatening, though a 37-year-old Czech tourist did sustain a spinal injury that will be checked by a specialist in Patra in western Greece.
Seven people on the Navagio beach were reportedly injured in the incident, with one woman in hospital with a fractured vertebrae.
