Boats Crash in Budapest – level 1

04-06-2019 07:00

This news is from Budapest. Budapest is the capital of Hungary. A river runs through the city. There are boats on the river.

There are 35 people on one boat. Thirty-three of them are tourists. They are from South Korea. This boat hits another boat. It turns over. It sinks.

People find 7 dead bodies. Twenty-one people are missing.

Difficult words: turn over (when the up goes down and down goes up), sink (go down), be missing (when a person is missing, we do not know if they are OK and where they are).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
