Student’s No Longer Crossing Raging River on a Cable

Not too long ago, we did an article about some Chinese school kids who had to cross a raging river on a steel cable everyday to get to their school.

We got a lot of visibility for that article and after the story was broke, people began to make donations to help the village build a real bridge.

Six months later, a 170 x 2 meter bridge now exists across the Nujiang River, near where the kids used to cross by cable.

Looks like the school children can finally go to school without risking their lives or getting stuck for hours in the middle of that old steel cable.
