Bridge goes down - level 2

Bridge goes down - level 2

26-07-2013 06:00

A bridge in southwest China collapsed. Six vehicles with 15 people inside fell into the river.

A survivor described the situation. First, the cars started to shake and there were some cracks on the road. Then, the bridge suddenly fell. It all happened very quickly so there was no time to do anything.

They found only four bodies and two vehicles so far. Twelve people are probably dead.

Difficult words: collapse (fall down), survivor (someone who lives after an accident).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
