Woman was under a house - level 1

Woman was under a house - level 1

13-05-2013 14:00

A building in Bangladesh fell down. Many people died but one woman didn’t die. She was under the building for 17 days. When people found her, they took her to the hospital.

These people were very happy. They smiled and they told others. This was very happy news. It gave people hope. We don't know why she didn’t die. She was very lucky. She will tell us her story when she is OK. People hope that there will be more people who didn’t die but other people were not so lucky. One thousand people died in this accident.

Interesting words: hope (feeling that something good will happen), accident (bad moment when something hits you).

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