An underwater surprise - level 2

An underwater surprise - level 2

A person in Arizona was snorkelling in the Colorado River when he discovered something shocking – two human skeletons!

He called police to the site and found out that the skeletons were not real. What’s more, they were relaxing and enjoying a tea party.

Two divers placed the skeletons Bernie and Bernadette in the river in August 2014 by two divers. They did it for fun.

The skeletons may bring more tourists to the area.

Difficult words: snorkel (when you have your head under the water and breathe through a tube – a snorkel), skeleton (all of the bones in somebody’s body), site (a place where something special happened).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
