Crossing the Ciberang River

The photo below portrays the daily commute to and from work and school for of adults and children in Lebak, Indonesia. Clinging for dear life on a disintegrating wood-and-wire suspension bridge, children as young as five take their lives into their hands crossing the Ciberang River every day.

Students, some as young as five, hold on to the side steel bars of a collapsed bridge as they cross a river to get to school at Sanghiang Tanjung village in Lebak, Indonesia.
