Bridge in India collapses – level 2

Bridge in India collapses – level 2

08-04-2016 15:00

A partly constructed bridge collapsed onto a busy street in India. It killed at least 15 people and trapped more than 100 under the rubble.

People started to help the trapped people by using their bare hands. They did anything to get the trapped people out alive.

The traffic was very busy and slowed down emergency services. There were lots of people and the situation was chaotic.

Difficult words: trapped (not able to move), rubble (pieces of a broken building), bare hands (just with hands, without any tools).

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