Ship goes down - level 1

Ship goes down - level 1

27-08-2013 06:00

A ferry goes to a port. The ferry changes its way. It goes to the port differently. All of this happens in the Philippines.

Another big ship is on the sea. The big ship doesn't know about the change. It is a problem. The ferry and the big ship crash. The ferry goes down. 24 people die. 629 people are fine.

The captains of the ships are OK. Police must ask them about this accident.

Difficult words: ferry (ship with a lot of people on it), port (place where ships stop), crash (hit), captain (boss).

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