What a shame. There have been a number of people killed and injured along this section of bluffs in the last 30+ years. There is an other chunk adjacent to the northern margin of the current failure that is ready to go. Waves cut into the bottom of the sandstone portion of the cliff (the vertical to overhanging part). Once it cuts far enough, the block falls or topples to the beach. If you are sitting up against the base of the cliff you are in serious danger.

i was in the water a couple hundred yards south of there, the first lifeguard truck went blazing north sirens blaring fast as i've ever seen them drive on the beach, then another one, they stopped at Grandview and i could see a crowd but not tell what happened, another guy and i were talking about all the shark sightings recently just prior to this and we were like oh crap, then a while later we saw the life flight helicopter, then not to much later news copters were flying around above us and to the north. a lifeguard truck finally came back south from there and didn't say to get out of the water so we figured it wasn't a shark attack and kept surfing, when i got out i heard it was a bluff collapse, pretty scary and sad, i guess the women's body is still there waiting for the coroner, and they are trying to rush to get some heavy equipment there to lift some huge chunks to make sure nobody else is under there, they had live rescue dogs but waiting on cadaver dogs. friday night north county is not easy to get to with all the traffic wherever they are coming from. i tell people with kids not to sit under the bluffs all the time, sometimes people listen and sometimes they ignore me... this was right next to the life guard tower at grandview like 25 feet. that guard and some beach goers were digging right away and then other first responders were arriving, so gnarly..

Ugh. Not surprised, but what a horrific tragedy. To those joking about the loss of life, you f'ing suck.
RIP to anyone lost.

" this was right next to the life guard tower at grandview like 25 feet. that guard and some beach goers were digging right away and then other first responders were arriving, so gnarly.."

Many is the time I have paddled out right there at a high tide. Very sad. My heart goes out to those who were hurt or passed.

Sad. What a horrible way to die.

Too bad there is not enough awareness about this kind of stuff.

Signs clearly don't work. Up against the cliffs at Blacks is the cool place to hang out.
