XI'AN - Falling rock injured more than ten tourists on Sunday morning in Northwest China's Shaanxi province, local authorities said.
Two of the victims are in critical condition.
The landslide occurred at Jinsixia Gorge, a local tourist site.
Falling stones crushed a rim skywalk and fell on the heads of several people, said Liu Fengxin, deputy manager of the Jinsixia management committee.
"We haven't gotten any reports of buried tourists," Liu added.
The gorge has been closed temporarily.
