    New Delhi (Sputnik): Twitter users were in a frenzy after coming across a nerve-wracking video of a school building collapsing into the Ganges River, in the Indian state of Bihar, as children and villagers stood precariously close to the building and watched.

    In the viral video, the school building can be seen slowly collapsing into the Ganges, leaving a vast cloud of dust that engulfs the people standing nearby and endangers their lives.

    Fortunately, no students were present in the school as authorities had evacuated them to another premise.

    Many netizens were aghast at the sight of villagers and children risking their lives and slammed them for their carelessness.

    Another joked about the incident; saying it was his childhood dream to see his school get demolished.

    Earlier, in a similar incident, a three-story building collapsed in Bihar claiming the lives of 33 people. The incident occurred after heavy floodwater currents from the Lakhandei River swept the house away.
