Last Wednesday, a bridge, which was under construction in Bavaria, Germany collapsed. A 40-metre part of the bridge fell 20 metres to the ground while construction workers were working on the site. One worker died and the bridge injured another 12.

Police are not sure how many people may still be trapped under the rubble. Four helicopters and many ambulances came to transport the injured to hospital.

Difficult words: site (a place), trapped (stuck, unable to move), rubble (pieces of stone, brick, concrete, etc.).
