Ship goes down - level 2
A ferry in the Philippines headed to a port. It wanted to change its way to the port but something went wrong.
A container ship probably didn’t agree with the change. The ferry crashed into the container ship. The ferry sank. More than 200 people now are missing and at least 24 people died. Divers are searching for more bodies. Thankfully, 629 people were rescued, many by fishing boats.
The captains of the two ships survived. Police will ask them about this accident.
Difficult words: ferry (big boat with people on it), container ship (ship which carries big boxes), sink (go under water), diver (person who goes under water).
