Plane Crash in Nepal – level 1

16-03-2018 15:00

Kathmandu is in Nepal. A plane is at the Kathmandu airport. The plane crashes.

Seventy-one people are on the plane. Thirty-eight people die. Twenty-three people are injured. Ten people are missing.

Emergency services come to the plane. They stop the fire that is on it. They look for people.

Difficult words: injured (have problems with the body), be missing (we do not know where they are and if they are OK), emergency services (the teams of people who help when something goes wrong).

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