People broke a bridge - level 1

There was a bridge in China. People destroyed the bridge but it wasn't easy.

There was electricity, gas and people's homes all near the bridge. The workers had to be careful. They put bags with water on the bridge. The water stopped the dust.

The bridge was very long. It was the longest bridge which they destroyed in China. It was a record.

Interesting words: destroy (break completely), had to (past form of must), dust (small sand in the air).

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