Train accident in Quebec - level 1

Train accident in Quebec - level 1

15-07-2013 06:00

A train in Canada has an accident. It is carrying oil. The oil explodes. There is fire everywhere.

Houses around the train are on fire too. Thirteen people die. Fifty people are missing. The police are trying to help but it is hard. The situation is very bad. It is the worst accident in Canada.

Clever people are now looking at the train. They want to understand it. They want to know what is wrong.

Interesting words: oil (you buy it for your car), explode (change fast into small pieces) be missing (we don't know where they are).

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