Building fell down - level 1

A building in Bangladesh fell down. It had eight floors. Many people worked in this building. Seventy people died and five hundred people were injured. Many people are still inside the building and they can't get out. Firemen and soldiers are trying to save them.

The owners of the building can be in trouble. They knew that the building was not OK. They ignored the problem. They sent people to work and those people died.

Interesting words: be injured (have problems with body), soldier (person in the army), owner (boss).

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