Necessity is the mother of invention

Bridge in a bag!

The children who get to school in a plastic bag

Many children around the world take the bus to school but in a mountainous area in the north of Vietnam, plastic bags have become the means of transport. This video, filmed by a primary school teacher, shows school children and teachers squeezing themselves into plastic bags so that they can be carried across a river. It's been widely shared on social media as people discuss the standard of bridge construction in remote parts of the country. In February, nine people died and many were injured after a suspension bridge collapsed in Lai Chau Province.
