People stopped very high - level 1

People are at a theme park. They are having fun. They are riding on a roller coaster.

Something happens. The roller coaster stops. This is bad. The people are up really high. It is not safe and the people are afraid. Firefighters come and save the people. They save everyone. Only one person must go to the hospital. This person has problems with his neck.

The roller coaster is closed. The people in the theme park must check it. They say that there is something wrong with the computer that runs the roller coaster.

Difficult words: theme park (park with big machines for fun), roller coaster (road which people ride fast for fun), firefighters (men who help with fire and other things), run (control).
