Trade schools are supposed to give hands-on training to prepare youth to become the builders of our communities.

Skills like carpentry, electronics, acrobatics ... Wait, what?! Well that's what it looks like anyway after some of Zanesville Ohio's Mid-East Career Training Center students shot a camera phone video that went viral.

The students were all working with licensed contractors under an apprenticeship program and learn trade skills at a home building construction site. However, with only one teacher to actually supervise up to 20 students, we're surprised something like this hasn't happened before now.

The video shows a group of very unsupervised teens in an unfinished room where a sawhorse has been made into a teeter-totter with a 2x4 laid across it. One boy is seen standing on the lower end waiting for the boy on the other side who has climbed a ladder to jump on top of it. Anyone who is a fan of Tom & Jerry or The Three Stooges will understand the goal here.

We'll spare you the actual details. You'll just have to click the video and take our word for it when we say while it looks as if the stunt made the teen an instant paraplegic, he actually wasn't injured at all.

The students posted the video but became victims of their own success. School administrators tracked them down through the video and suspended them all. The school also noted it will now be paring down the number of students at job sites in order to properly supervise them all.
