Explosion in Iran – level 1

28-08-2018 07:00

Many Iranians use gas water heaters. They are not very safe. They can explode. One water heater explodes recently. It is in a building. The building falls down.

Ten people die. Five people are injured. The explosion is one of the worst in Iran. People look for survivors.

Difficult words: gas water heater (a thing which makes hot water by burning gas), injured (have problems with the body), survivor (somebody who survives – lives through something very bad).

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