New Mall Falls Down – level 3

17-07-2018 07:00

A newly opened shopping mall in Mexico City partly collapsed last Thursday. Luckily, shortly before the incident, people evacuated the facility and a nearby highway.

The building is controversial, and its construction angered residents who are worried about the loss of open space. The mall already suffered several damaging subsoil slides before the collapse.

Difficult words: facility (a building), subsoil (the ground that is under the top ground).
