(Reuters) - One hiker was killed and another injured when a seaside cliff collapsed at a park in California and sent giant boulders and earth plunging onto the beach below, officials have said. A photograph taken from a sheriff's office helicopter showed the devastation following Saturday's collapse of part of the Arch Rock overlook at the Point Reyes National Seashore, about 40 miles northwest of San Francisco. The National Park Service said the area had been closed to the public for safety reasons since Thursday when large fissures appeared at the top of Arch Rock, weakening the cliff. The park service said bluffs on California's coast are inherently unstable and prone to crumbling.
