School bus in Turkey – level 2

09-06-2016 07:00

In Turkey, a bus was taking students home after a weekend trip from a national park when it collided with another car and then fell into a canal.

14 people died. The fall injured more than 26 others.

Many people came to watch the bus in the canal. Emergency services worked tirelessly through the night to rescue survivors and to pull the bus out of the canal. It is unclear how many people were travelling on the bus.

Difficult words: collide (to hit something that was moving), tirelessly (hard and without stopping).
