Children risk their lives using trolley 100 feet over river to reach school
Children at an Indian village in the Himalayas risk their lives to go to school by taking a trolley slung 100 feet over a raging river.

Children of Danijala village in Haldwani, Uttarkhand, India have to use the trolley twice a day to go to the school and return home. Parents of these children said that using the trolley posed many dangerous risks, in addition, this was also a waste of time. “It takes hours to send all the children across the river in each small trip,” says Reshma Sharma, mother of a seven-year-old girl.

Residents say because the people in the village are completely isolated from the outside world, the only option is to either ride the risky trolley or stay at home while the road to school is flooded whenever the river Gaula overflows due to heavy rain or melting snow from the Himalayas.

Villagers say although they have been demanding a bridge across the river for years, the government has not responded.
