Plane Crashes on Beach – level 3

09-08-2017 07:00

In Portugal, a light plane crash landed on a busy beach and killed a 56-year-old man and an eight-year-old girl. The plane wobbled as it landed, apparently due to a partly broken left wing. The two victims died instantly and sunbathers ran from the plane into the sea.

One witness said that more people were not hit because they saw the plane coming and moved away in time, and it was lucky that more people were not killed. The police are now questioning the two occupants of the plane, who were not hurt.

Difficult words: wobble (move unsteadily from side to side), due to (because of), occupant (a person who is somewhere).
