Train Disaster in India – level 3

26-01-2017 07:00

At least 36 people are dead after a train derailed in India. People are afraid that many passengers are still trapped in the train and rescue workers are attempting to get inside.

Seven coaches were thrown off the tracks at around midnight on Saturday. Indian authorities have not yet determined what caused the train to derail. Some 50 injured passengers are currently being treated in hospital.

India is home to the world’s third largest rail network but due to poor infrastructure and maintenance, accidents like this are not uncommon.

Difficult words: derail (go off the tracks), attempt (try).
