3 killed after bluff collapses onto beachgoers near San Diego

first_imgiStock/KC Photography(ENCINITAS, Calif.) — Three people were killed Friday as a cliffside broke free and toppled onto beachgoers in Encinitas, California, on a sunny summer day at the popular seaside escape.One person was found dead at the beach, while two others who were transported to a local hospital in critical condition were later pronounced dead, according to city officials. Two other people were pulled out from under the debris pile and taken to the hospital with minor injuries.The fire department was notified of the bluff collapse just before 3 p.m. local time.“We are devastated by the tragedy today and our hearts go out to the victims and their families,” Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear said in a statement. “We stand ready to help in any way possible. Our engineers and the public safety team are diligently working to assess bluff conditions.”City officials have closed the beach in the area of the collapse.Rescuers were not able to search a portion of the pile due to the stability of the bluff, officials said at an afternoon press conference. Officials don’t know if anyone is missing or unaccounted for, saying, “We have a couple of different stories.”Homes located on top of the bluff are far enough from the edge and are not expected to be in danger of collapsing.Heavy equipment was brought in to help clear out the rocks and dirt, with officials saying they even used air bags to lift some debris and pull out survivors.The officials called the collapse a “naturally occurring event,” and somewhat common, with about four to eight per year, but not usually as large in size. Beachgoers are warned daily by lifeguards to stay clear of the area in case of such collapses, officials said.“This is a naturally eroding coastline,” Encinitas Lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles said at the press conference. “There’s really no rhyme or reason, but that’s what it does naturally. … This is what it does, and this is how are beaches are actually partially made. It actually has these failures.”The area of the bluff that collapsed was about 25 feet by 30 feet, officials said, and the debris pile was about 10 feet deep at its highest.Beachgoers immediately began trying to clear debris by hand, an eyewitness told San Diego ABC affiliate KGTV, before fire officials arrived with equipment and search and rescue dogs.Officials said no children were among the dead or injured, but did not have further information on the victims.Encinitas is a popular beach town about a half hour north of San Diego.

Brilliant Baldwin

first_imgPhoenix Members Golf SocietyWith carts being allowed on fairways we decided not to implement the winter rule of ‘lift clean and place’ for our outing on Tuesday, Nov. 27.  Although the course is still a little wet in places, this turned out to be justified.  There were a few places where the ball picked up a bit of mud, but generally the course is in great shape considering the amount of rainfall we are experiencing at present. Luckily the rain kept away again, albeit sometimes threatening.  Considering the conditions the scoring today was very good with all first four places breaking handicap.  We were playing stroke play for the Trattoria Italiana Restaurant voucher today on the Ocean and Mountain course.Richard Baldwin and Mike Gerrard pose with the staff members at The Relax Bar.Richard Baldwin has been playing some steady golf of late, always being around his handicap of 12.  However today he blitzed the course with a superb net 66 (gross 78).  Some way back with net 69 were Paul Taylor and Frank Hughes, with the scribe claiming fourth spot with a net 71 (other days this would be good enough to win).Near pin prizes were awarded to Richard Baldwin, Joris Goetschalkx & Mike Gerrard.  The rest of the field’s names, who did not win anything, were put into the hat for a lucky draw chance.  The lucky draw prizes are donated by our hosts, The Relax Bar at Ban Amphur, and the recipients were John Bartley, Bill Hewitt, Sergo Volpi & Adriano Reale.Anyone interested in joining in the golf or (sea fishing at weekends), please contact me (Mike) on 087 091 7565 for further information.last_img read more

The Portuguese right-back has had an impressive season at Juventus.Advertisement Tactically , Cancelo would be a huge boost to City as he can play right back in a back 4 as well wing back ahead of a back 3.The Portuguese International possesses great running ability and can whip in dangerous crosses. His pacey dribbles and underlaps make him a lethal offensive player and City are known to involve their fullbacks/wingbacks up front.Advertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more

Former Govt Minister Nottage low at hospital rumors of death denied by

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, June 21, 2017 – Nassau – Rumors took off like wildfire today, circulating about once Deputy Leader of the PLP and former Bain and Grants Town MP, Dr. Bernard Nottage having died of illness. Magnetic Media can confirm and the Progressive Liberal Party also confirmed that the rumor was not true. Dr. Nottage is, however, severely ill at Doctor’s Hospital.His current condition is not surprising considering that the 71 year-old has been in a long battle with his health. Just recently, during the election season, Nottage had to be seen by a doctor for “dehydration” after slurring and stumbling his words while speaking at a PLP mass rally.At the time, PLP Chairman, Bradley Roberts had said that Nottage was on “bed-rest” and “expected to fully recover”, but obviously, his condition has gotten much worse. Nottage is said to be in very fragile state at this hour.#magneticmedianews#nottagegravelyillathopsital Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #nottagegravelyillathopsitallast_img read more
