A man kills 37 people in a nursery in Thailand. The people are teachers and 23 children. The terrible event happens last week. This man is 34 years old. He is a former policeman. He takes drugs. He loses his job.

On Thursday, this man walks into the nursery. The children are sleeping. The man kills the teachers and children. Then, the man runs home. He kills his family and himself.

Usually, 92 children are at the nursery. On that day, only 20 are there. Some children can’t go to school because the weather is bad. Also, a school bus doesn’t work.

Officials don’t know why the man attacks the nursery. People say that the man is friendly and talkative.

Difficult words: nursery (a place where young children stay, and teachers look after them), former (happens or be at an earlier time), talkative (a person who likes to talk to others).

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