Plane Crash in Cuba – level 3

21-05-2018 07:00

A plane on an internal flight from Cuba’s capital Havana to Holguín (in the south of the island) crashed 20 kilometres off Havana.

Including 11 foreigners, 110 people died in the crash. The only survivors were three women, but people say that they are in critical condition with serious burns.

People do not yet know what caused the crash, but someone found one of the two black boxes from the plane in ‘good condition’.

Difficult words: black box (a machine which records what happens on a plane).
