Other cartoons by Knight have been circulated on social media in recent days showing that this was far from a one-off occurrence. And the cartoonist, Mark Knight , said he had "no knowledge of those cartoons or that [Jim Crow] period".

Video footage of the terrifying moment showed the rock from the limestone cliff face split and plummet to the shore, sending waves crashing over tourists. Her husband and two children were also hospitalized with minor injuries, along with three other beachgoers who were treated and released.

"There was a rumble and a rock fell, followed by a larger rock and then another".

There were no people missing but authorities had air and sea assets in the area and were conducting a search as a precaution, in case people were trapped under the rocks, one official said.

"A giant wave hit the small boats and debris hit people on the beach", she said.
