During a terrifying freak accident, a 16-year-old boy was decapitated on a school bus.
The teen boy was sticking his head out of the window of a school bus when the vehicle drove past a pole and struck the boy’s head off. The boy died in front of many of his classmates on a field trip to Durban, South Africa.
“We were leaving for home on two buses. The bus behind ours had 45 students,” Kabelo Maqache, Deputy Principal of Molapo High School in Leribe, Lesotho, said. “I believe he died instantly.”
One teenager apparently had to be taken to the hospital for traumatic stress after watching his friend’s death.
According to Robert McKenzie, a spokesperson for KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services, the bus was traveling down a narrow road when the boy was struck by a pole.
