Ferry accident in Bangladesh - level 2
A ferry with 150 people on board collided with a boat and overturned. More than 70 people, including women and children, died.
People saved at least 50 passengers. Police arrested the captain of the boat and his two crew. Accidents on the rivers of Bangladesh are common – the boats are of low quality and there are often too many people on them.
Difficult words: ferry (a boat which transports people), collide (to hit), crew (people who work on a ship).
