Floor Falls in Indonesia – level 2

26-01-2018 15:00

In Jakarta, a mezzanine floor inside the Indonesia Stock Exchange tower collapsed. About 30 students plunged into the lobby.

Police said that there were about 80 injuries but no deaths. Police evacuated and cordoned off the area of the building while trading resumed in the other areas.

Leaders say that the floor did not fall because of a militant attack.

Difficult words: mezzanine (a small floor between other floors that is usually a balcony), plunge (fall quickly), cordon off (block off).
