A group of Indonesian school children have been filmed crossing a collapsed suspension bridge over a swollen river to reach their school.
Students are risking their lives to get to their school in the Indonesian village of Sanghiang Tanjung after three suspension bridges in the district of Lebak collapsed due to flooding.
The 162-metre-long bridge that connected Ciwaru village to Sabagi village was severely damaged in the floods, giving children few options of getting to class on time.
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.

Wow, quite an obstacle to education, but its quite inspiring to see them push through it.
Makes you wonder if lazy kids in western countries would do the same? I am pretty sure they would just stay home and eat some Cheetos

I don't find this inspirational at all...I find it depressing.
