Hot air balloon accident - level 1

28-05-2013 06:00

Two hot air balloons were flying. Then an accident happened. The two balloons hit. One balloon was not OK and it fell down. It was in Turkey.

There were people in the balloons. They wanted to look at the nice nature. A visitor from Brazil died. More people had problems with their bodies.

This was the second big accident with balloons. The first accident happened in 2009 when a British person died.

Interesting words: balloon (big bag with air inside), visitor (person who visits something).

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