Two students in the Eastern Cape put their lives in danger to write an IsiXhosa exam.

A flood in King William’s Town has hindered 30 high school students from writing their exam.

The flooded bridge is one of two that acts as the link to 700 households.

According to Herald Live, the bridge allows the residents of the Qaga community to commute to neighboring villages.

On Wednesday, police officials assisted students however, by Thursday the bridge was deemed too risky and unsafe.

Kwanele, Mabonga, a student, reports that the children held onto each other as they crossed the water.

He lost his school shoes and school bag in the process.

The principle of Toise Senior Secondary School has made arrangements for the exam to be written at a later stage.
