Lifting Waikato-wide 'bombing' ban will stop kids jumping from a dangerous rail bridge

Authorities are desperately looking for ways to stop people from jumping from a rail bridge in Ngaruawahia where a young girl was killed last month.

Moareen Rameka was playing with friends on the bridge near Old Taupiri Road when she was hit by a freight train. She tried to run but was clipped by the train and died at the scene.

Bomblife NZ founder Hads Te Huia, who judges water bombing competitions, says lifting a Waikato-wide bombing ban at public swimming pools will go a long way to solving the problem.
