(Scroll down for video) A school trip ended with a disaster as a boy was decapitated.
The 16-year-old boy was beheaded after sticking out his head from the window of his school bus as it drove past a pole on the side of the road.
The teenager died on the spot in front of dozens of classmates on a field trip to Durban, South Africa.
Another student had to be taken to a hospital for post-traumatic stress after witnessing the horrible death. The students were from a school in Lesotho.
Kabelo Maqache, the Deputy Principal of Molapo High School in Leribe, said that they were on their way home from an educational trip to Durban at the time of the accident.
“We were leaving for home on two buses. The bus behind ours had 45 students,” Maqache said.
“One student looked out the window and he hit an electric pole on the side of the road,” Maqache added.
