And you think YOU have it hard in school...

Is college hitting hard on you? Research papers, quizzes, chapter tests, etc; is there too much work and not enough time to party? Well, things could be worse. You could be the principle of your college. That means you are in charge of every single person that goes to that particular school. Now imagine having that school collapse. Now what do you do?

Unfortunately, this did really happen. On Wednesday, five female students in the village of Belyayevka, Russia, died after a concrete staircase unexpectedly collapsed on them. Since the accident, no other students have returned to classes. Funerals are expected to be on friday.

Marina Borodina, after hearing of the accident, hanged herself on Thursday. She was 42 years old. She worked in the school, teaching grade 11, and was close with all of the girls killed in the collapse.

So the next time you go to the library and begin your 15 page research paper, don't complain. There are worse things that could happen to you. And this proves it.
