Kids take high-altitude zipline to school

Kids in a remote village in Colombia travel to school via a precarious, high-altitude zipline, carrying their younger sibs in hemp sacks and slowing their descent with a wooden fork:

Despite her youth, Daisy is expected to travel down the flying fox at speeds of up to 62km/h with her younger brother attached beside her in a sack.

It's a high pressure journey, with a 400m drop into the Rio Negro river facing her if the pulley system gives way.
