Two cars fell into a river - level 2, A12

A wedding party in China had a terrible end. Two of the wedding party’s cars fell 10 metres into a river where a bridge collapsed.

One car was taken by the river and the other stayed under the bridge. Almost all of the passengers managed to swim to safety but the driver of one car couldn't get out.

Rescue teams were called to the scene. One man went down to the car in the river and removed the driver through the sunroof.

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

It is thought the incident happened after heavy rains took away big part of land under the bridge.


Interesting words: rescue (save), sunroof (window on the roof of a car).
