This is some bad news. It is about a plane. The plane flies from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. One hundred and sixty people are on the plane. Sixteen of them are school children. There are two babies on the plane, too.

The planes crashes. It falls down in the French Alps. Nobody survives.

The crash is probably an accident. However, people are not sure. They are investigating the plane crash.

Difficult words: crash (to hit the ground), survive (to live), investigate (to get information and to try to understand something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

It seems that many planes have crashed recently, doesn't it?
