On Friday evening, a plane crashes at an airport in India.The airport is very big and famous. Many international planes land there. However, heavy rains are in India now. It is typical summer weather in the country.

The plane wants to land. However, it is too dangerous. The pilots decide not to land. They must try again.

This time, the plane slides on the runway. A lot of water is on the runway. The plane crashes. The plane breaks into two pieces.

Luckily, no fire starts. Rescuers can take the passengers out. 18 people die in the accident. More than 150 people have serious problems.

Difficult words: international (something that relates to more countries), typical (usual), slide (to move on something smooth, often without control).
