Plane crash in Tokyo - level 2

30-07-2015 07:00

A small plane took off at an airport in Tokyo at 11 a.m. on Sunday. The plane crashed just 500 metres away from the airport.

It crashed into a house in a densely populated suburb of the city. The two men who were inside the plane died, and one woman who was inside the house died, too.

The crash injured at least two other people, and it set on fire at least three houses and two cars.

Difficult words: densely (a lot), suburb (a city area where people have houses).

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