A young hiker was killed when a gravel cliff avalanched near the beach in Netanya Friday overnight. A group of campers set up near the coarse sand cliffs of Netanya and the gravel collapsed over their tents. Two people were lightly injured and taken to Laniado hospital in Netanya, apart from the young man who, by the account of a Magen David Adom paramedic, was "simply buried under the rocks." The gravel cliffs near Netanya were considered dangerous for years as they were not fortified with metal beams or fences which would prevent the soft dirt to collapse. Several hotels are built along the cliff's edge and these are also in danger.
