An Accident Waiting to Happen?

ALIUMANU (KHNL) - Some parents say construction work at an Oahu school is an accident waiting to happen. They say the work is dangerously close to their children.

A concerned mom e-mailed our Talk Story page to tell us about the risky situation. She says big tractors and low fences at Aliamanu Elementary School could be too tempting for curious, young minds. She s worried that children could get hurt from the construction zone. And she is not the only parent who s concerned:

"...them getting hurt on that tractor or getting stuck somewhere in the fence. Them trying to call out for help, unless they're carrying a cell phone on them which I doubt it" says parent Julia Starks.

A construction supervisor says there is plenty of supervision when the machines are operating. But there is no supervision during after-school hours when the machines are not running.
