A 7-year-old died at another school in January when a goal post fell as students tried to move it. In March, a gust of wind blew down a goal post and killed a 9-year-old.

The Education Ministry issued a statement Wednesday saying it is investigating the case and that a medical team has been dispatched to the school to counsel students.
