An accident happens in Bangladesh. A ferry hits a boat. The ferry turns over. There are 150 people on the ferry. Seventy people die. People save fifty people. Police arrest the captain of the boat.

In Bangladesh, accidents like this happen often. The boats are not good. Also, the boats are often overcrowded.

Difficult words: ferry (a boat which transports people), arrest (to take to a police station), overcrowded (there are too many people on the boats).

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