Two cars fell into a river - level 1, A12

A wedding party in China had a bad end. Two cars fell 10 metres into a river because a bridge collapsed.

The river took one car. The second car stayed under the bridge. People could get out of the cars but the driver of one car couldn’t get out.

People came to help the driver. One man went down to the car in the river and took the driver up.

The driver was taken to hospital. He had some broken bones and he was in shock.

The bridge collapsed because heavy rains took away big part of land under the bridge.


Interesting words: wedding (moment when two people will be married), collapse (go down quickly).
