In an interesting and non-political news piece .........

The BBC reported on 66 children (4-5 year-olds)  found in a mini van designed for a maximum of 8 people ..............

This happened in Northern China and the driver was arrested .........

The seats of the mini van had been removed and replaced with long thin wooden benches  ..........

The police had to bring in 12 police vans to take the children home ...........

You can find a video on the internet (just for fun) ..........



Well done BBC, factually reported and light-hearted  ...............

Before they let those kids out of the mini van, they should have invited people from the Guinness World Records to see if it's another record.

What a good idea ..........

But the kids looked happy enough .......

Albeit, puzzled by the police presence  ............     


Maybe they can re-stage it ...........

No ..........................

My take is it just looks like the usual method of money making where a private van is contracted to do a school run ..........

But the way to make the money is to break the law ............

And to do anything for money rather than rational or reason .........

.

So many kids squeezed in a mini-van for 8 make them feel they are having a happy adventure together. Maybe that's why they were so happy.

But if an accident happens to that overloaded mini-van, it will be a big tragic.
