A ship catastrophe in Italy - level 1, A12
A big ship has a big problem in Italy. The ship changed the normal way because the captain wanted to show the ship to people on land. It was a big mistake because there was a big rock under water. The ship hit the rock. The rock opened the ship and the ship started to take water.
People lost control. “It was like in a film”, one man said. “Things went down to the floor and they broke, people ran, the stairs were full of people on people.”
Six people died and 15 are lost. People must stop looking for people now because the ship can soon go under water completely.
The captain says that it wasn’t his mistake. He says that the maps were not OK and they didn’t show the rock under water.
