·1-min read

A man has died after part of a cliff collapsed on a group at Victoria's Bell's Beach.

The 30-metre cliff face gave way at about 2.15pm on Friday, police said.

Six people were sitting under the cliff and three were struck by falling debris.

A 28-year-old man was winched out by air ambulance and flown to Melbourne with serious upper body injuries but died on the way.

A man and a woman sustained non-life threatening arm injuries and were taken to hospital in Geelong by road.

The beach is an internationally renowned surf spot, which up until the COVID-19 pandemic, held the annual Rip Curl Pro competition.
