A man is in the air. He has a parachute. He is falling down. He is few metres above the ground. A plane appears. The plane and the parachute hit.

The plane moves the man in the air. The plane hits the ground with its nose. Everything happens very quickly. A photographer takes pictures of the accident.

Both men go to hospital. They are not injured seriously.

Difficult words: parachute (big cloth which makes you fall slowly), appear (come quickly), injured (have problems with the body).

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