Many people on a bridge - level 1

This happens in China on Sunday. A lot of people come to a nice spot. This place is in the mountains.

It is very hot. A lot of people come to the water. They all go on a small bridge. The bridge is not strong. The people are too heavy for the bridge. The bridge falls down. Everybody falls into the water.

Other people help them. They give them life rings and rafts. Nobody dies but 10 people go to the hospital.

Difficult words: spot (place), life ring (circle around your body which makes you safe in the water), raft (small boat).

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