An accident happens in India. There is a bridge. People are building it. They are not finished.

The bridge collapses. It kills fifteen people. One hundred people are under the rubble. Other people try to help them. They use their bare hands.

There are a lot of people. The situation is chaos. The traffic is very busy. It slows down the emergency services.

Difficult words: collapse (fall down), rubble (pieces of a broken building), bare hands (just with hands, without any tools/things).

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