Addis Ababa―Eleven children were hurt, two critically, when the school fence caved in while the children were out playing during a snack break this morning, according information from the Addis Ababa Fire and Emergency Prevention and Rescue Agency (AAFEPRA).
Frehiwot No. 2 Elementary School is located at Nefas Silk Lafto Sub-city, near Kadisco Paint Factory and adjacent the construction site for the city’s light rail project. According to AAFEPRA the concrete fence might have caved in due to a deep drilling happening next to it for a power house intended for the light rail project.
The students were at a snack break playing in the compound when the fence collapsed. Two of the eleven were admitted to a hospital and are said to be in critical condition.
