In Tasmania, six school-age children leaped to their deaths. During the Devonport’s Hillcrest Primary School’s end-of-year celebrations, a freak wind gust blew the schoolchildren off the edge, sending them plummeting more than thirty feet to their deaths below, and leaving the nation devastated by the tragedy that occurred only days before

On Friday morning, the funerals for the Year 6 pupils were scheduled to begin. Glen Sheehan, Jye’s father, had been involved in a horrible accident that left him in a coma at the time of his son’s death. He awoke from his coma on Friday in time to hear about his son’s death before being interred.

Three others were also injured. However, they are still fighting for their lives in hospitals after spending a week in critical condition at Royal Hobart Hospital. These victims have suffered terrible injuries including multiple fractured bones, internal damage, and blunt force trauma.
