The floor of a school in Córdoba collapsed and five students fell into the septic chamber


They heard a 'crunch' and suddenly they fell two meters. They were left in the middle of sewage and one of them suffered a sprain.

It was 2:00 p.m. and class time had already passed, so second-year high school students from a


school were preparing to leave and return home.

However, five of them found themselves in an unexpected situation that bordered on tragedy.

It was when they felt a creak in the schoolyard where they were standing and suddenly the floor collapsed.

One of them also suffered a sprained ankle.

The dramatic situation occurred on Tuesday afternoon at the

Instituto Jóvenes Argentinos

, located in the Jardín Espinosa neighborhood, in the southern part of the city.

It is a secondary level cooperative, located on Pablo Richhieri avenue at 3400.

One of the affected boys recounted that they were leaving school when they felt

"a creaking"

on the floor.

First, they looked at each other in shock.

They thought they had broken a tile.

Seconds later,

they fell two meters down into the sewage.

"They came out scared and trembling

," the parents warned in dialogue with

El Doce TV


Alejandra, one of them, explained that she was at her house when she received the "surprise" call from the course coordinator to tell her that her son "had fallen into a well."


It was crazy

. Then he calmed me down and explained the situation to me. Thank God, my son is tall. But from the waist down

he was a mess

. He is very scared," he said.

"He got together with some colleagues, he heard a noise and at the moment everything opened. They fell. When he made that crack they looked at each other with the companions," he explained about the moment before the incident.

Another woman was "concerned" about the situation: "We are parents who mainly demand security in the infrastructure because what happened could have been more than an accident."

For this reason, the parents ask that a meeting be held with the authorities and that the building conditions be improved so that the children can continue with their classes.

The boys were "scared" by the situation.

In principle, they said, they will resume next Friday since the institution will take two days to solve the place of the collapse and control the rest of the facilities.

As a result of the incident that worried and alerted the entire class, one of the boys suffered a sprain, while his classmates lost shoes, supplies and backpacks.
