The mudslide in
Sierra Leone
In Sierra Leone a mudslide killed 200 or more people then I got killed by the mudslide. Then some people were looking for me and my loved ones.  I was in the mud for 5 hours. Then I was a ghost. The people failed to get me and I was stuck in the mud and my loved ones a drowned also. What  was left of me was my bones. Then they looked for my bones,  found my bones, then they put them in a  wooden coffin. My loved ones were killed as well.Then they were brown muddy  ghosts too.
