From Iceland — Schoolkids Sprayed With Sewage

Schoolkids Sprayed With Sewage

Published June 5, 2014

A group of elementary school children in Garðskagaviti were the victims of an unfortunate accident yesterday when they were showered with sewage during their lunch break, reports Vísir

A man pumping a nearby septic tank lost control of the hose, spraying the children with waste.  

Although the school and the local town administration were reluctant to discuss the matter when contacted, all expressed a sadness that the event had occurred but underlined that this was a simple case of human error. 

“Shit happens,” said one official who did not wish to be named.
