Human mattress dominoes chain – level 2

20-04-2016 07:00

An appliance and electronics company in America set a new world record. It is the record for the largest human mattress dominoes chain ever!

1,200 people toppled over one after the other in a warehouse in Maryland. The full line took 13 minutes and 38 seconds to get from the beginning to the end.

The company will give the mattresses to local charities. The charities help poor and homeless people.

Difficult words: appliance (machine), topple (fall), warehouse (a large building where you put things before you sell them).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
