People run from a plane - level 2

There was an accident at an airport in Montreal. A fire broke out on a belt which moves passengers’ luggage.

Smoke filled the plane with about 250 passengers inside. Most of them used the emergency slide to get out.

Five people were injured while they were on the slide. They were taken to the hospital.

Difficult words: break out (start), luggage (bags you carry when you’re travelling), emergency slide (way out of the plane).

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