Building Collapses in Poland – level 1

09-03-2018 07:00

In Poland, there is an explosion at an apartment building. The building collapses. It kills four people. It injures 24 people.

Firefighters come to the building. They look through the rubble. They look for people who are still alive. Dogs and a search and rescue group help them.

People want to know why there is an explosion. They think that maybe gas causes it.

Everybody must leave the building to be safe.

Difficult words: collapse (fall down suddenly), rubble (pieces of walls or floors or other things in a building), a search and rescue group (people who come to places to find and save people).

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