Building fell down - level 2

Building fell down - level 2

29-04-2013 06:00

An eight-story-building in Bangladesh fell down. There were many women in the building who were working in the factories which produce clothes. Seventy people died in the building and more than 500 people were injured. Many are still inside the building and they cannot get out. Firefighters and soldiers are trying to save them.

One policeman told the news agency about the owners' lack of care. The owners let people inside the building but they knew about a crack in the building which had been found the very previous day.

Interesting words: eight-story (8 floors), lack (not enough), crack (break in the wall).

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