Car under water - level 2

01-08-2013 06:00

A woman from Maryland, USA managed to save herself after her car fell out of a bridge right into water below.

Witnesses saw how she clung to rocks. They tried to calm her down and they also called for help. The 22-year-old driver is now back from the hospital and she's fine.

This is only the second time that a car fell out of this bridge. However, people started to talk about the bridge’s safety. There are two barriers but a third one may need to be built in the future.

Difficult words: cling (hold), barrier (fence).

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