Boat goes down - level 1
This happens in the Mediterranean Sea. A boat is sailing to Europe. There are 700 migrants on the boat.
A rescue boat approaches it. People start to move. The boat is not big enough for them. The boat turns over. It is a fishing boat. It can only hold 30 to 50 people, not 700 people.
Twenty-five people die. Rescue people save 400 people.
Difficult words: sail (when a boat moves in the water with a sail – a big cloth that moves the boat), rescue boat (a boat which saves people), approach (to come).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
