Family in a Plane Crash – level 1

02-03-2017 07:00

A small plane takes off. Five people are on the plane. They are a family. The plane falls down. It hits two houses and starts a fire. This happens close to an airport.

Four people die. One person survives. She is a teenage girl. She flies out of the plane when it hits the houses. She is not injured badly. She is in hospital now.

Difficult words: take off (get in the air), survive (live), injured (if you are injured, there is a problem with your body).

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