Children risk lives to go to school on aqueduct just inches wide

Children in Indonesia are risking their lives everyday just to get to school.
They use an aqueduct, suspended hundreds of metres above the ground as a shortcut, even though it was not built for people to walk on.


It is meant to transport water, but the wooden structure links Suro Village and Plempungan Village in Java.

Even though it is dangerous, they would rather use the precarious structure than walk a distance over three miles.

Children cycle along a wooden planks in the middle in their school uniform while local adults use it to transport food and material between the two villages.
