The incident happened may 17 in the center of Cherkassy. A group of second graders a tree fell and crushed four pupils, said the “FACTS” the press officer of the police area Dmitry Grishchenko.
“It happened on the street Lesia Ukrainka. A group of schoolchildren along with a teacher were returning from excursions. Along the road between the trees someone pulled a metal cable — no more than two feet from the ground. We are still investigating what happened. There is a version that the kids decided to ride on this rope and hung on to him. One of the trees fell directly on students. But there are other assumptions. It is possible that the tree fell on the children, not for the fun of second graders. Perhaps someone from the students crossed the rope and hooked his leg. Whatever it was, the tree was uprooted. Most likely, it was old.
Four children were taken to hospital by ambulance. Militiamen find out the reasons of incident”, — said Grishchenko.
As it became known “FACTS”, three of the affected students are already home. Injuries have, fortunately, minor. But one of the girls a bone fracture of the lower leg. Until the end of the school year and a big half of the vacation the student will have to spend in a cast.
