Plane Crashes on Beach – level 1

09-08-2017 07:00

A small plane is landing on a beach in Portugal. The left wing of the plane is broken. The plane moves from side to side.

The beach is very busy. People see the plane. They move away. However, one man and a girl are killed. It is lucky that only two people die.

Two people are in the plane. They are OK. The police are talking to them.

Difficult words: land (to get back on the ground), wing (the one of the two flat parts on sides of an airplane), busy (with a lot of people).

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