Woman was under a house - level 2

Woman was under a house - level 2

13-05-2013 14:00

A woman survived 17 days of hell under the fallen factory in Bangladesh. When she was found, the rescuers moved her quickly to a hospital for treatment.

People couldn't believe it and they called their friends to tell the happy news. This was very good news and it encourages the rescue teams. Not everybody was so lucky though. It was confirmed that more than a thousand people died in this accident.

We don't know how this woman survived but she will hopefully tell us soon. People hope that there will be more survivors.

Interesting words: encourage (give somebody the confidence), confirm (say that something is true).

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