    TEXAS GRANDMOTHER RESCUED AFTER POSING ON ICEBERG THRONE THAT DRIFTED OUT TO SEA DURING ICELAND VACATION In Iceland, the iconic Reynisfjara Beach has been the site where several tourists have died over the past decade due to the waves, with many close calls also being reported. Around the same time of the incident caught on video, another tourist was injured when he was also knocked over by a wave and nearly dragged out to sea, Icelandic news site Visir reported. A warning sign at Reynisfjara Beach in Iceland as seen in October 2018. ( Travis Fedschun/Fox News) The entrance to the beach area does feature warning signs that highlight the risk, but officials said the two incidents have prompted a safety review of the tourist site. CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APP At a meeting on Friday, government officials introduced measures to improve safety at the beach that could allow police to close the site for five to seven days from November till March every year due to weather conditions, Icelandic news outlet Morgunblai reported. A group of tourists in Iceland were left scampering to safety when a large chunk of a nearby glacier suddenly collapsed into the sea, producing a gigantic wave that caught the adventurers by surprise. Another project in the works is a wave forecast system for the beach with a connected warning system to inform tourists who plan on traveling to the site. The project would also include a mast on the beach with a light that would flash a warning at times of danger, according to the Iceland Review. Icelandic Minister of Tourism, Industry and Innovation rds Kolbrn Reykfjr Gylfadttir has said the recent incidents prove why a risk evaluation of the area is necessary. Its unacceptable that theres a risk of a massive accident in one of the most popular tourist locations in the country, without the necessary arrangements in place, certain improvements have been made, but the responsibility for the case is complicated as well as the fact that travelers often ignore warnings, putting themselves at great risk.

    A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
