Ice Breaks Under a Car – level 1

30-12-2021 07:00

This happens in Northeast China. Three men are in a car. They drive onto a frozen lake. They drive on the ice for a moment, but then the ice breaks. The car starts to sink. Luckily, everybody gets out of the car in time.

There are many people at the lake. They are at a fishing festival. They watch the accident. Later, people move the car out of the water.

Difficult words: frozen (covered in ice), sink (to go underwater), in time (not too late).

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