Dangerous Path to School

Children in Indonesia are risking their lives everyday just to get to school.
They use an aqueduct, suspended hundreds of meters bridge 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.
