Panic at Disco – level 2

11-12-2018 07:00

Somebody sprayed a substance similar to pepper spray at a nightclub in Italy which made people panic, and there was a stampede.

Six people died in the stampede and 50 more were injured. Five of the killed were teenagers. The incident happened early on Saturday morning.

Difficult words: substance (gas or liquid), panic (when you get so scared you start to run away without thinking), stampede (when many people get scared and start running).

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