Ferry on fire - level 2
A ferry was going from Mallorca, which is a Spanish island, to the Spanish mainland. Something caused a fire and the ferry began to burn. Someone on another ferry close by filmed the burning ferry.
The captain of the burning ferry did not initially want to evacuate the boat, but people left in life boats. All 156 people were rescued.
Difficult words: ferry (a big boat for moving people), mainland (the main area of land that forms a country), initially (in the beginning).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
