An incident happens in Argentina’s waters. There is a Chinese ship. It must not fish there. An Argentinian coastguard comes to the ship.

The Chinese ship moves towards the coastguard. It wants to hit the coastguard. The coastguard warns the ship.

The ship does nothing. The coastguard attacks. It damages the boat and it goes down.

The coastguard saves four Chinese. Another Chinese ship saves the others.

Difficult words: incident (a situation when something bad happens), coastguard (the police in the ocean), damage (to break).

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

What would you do if you were the Argentinian coastguard?
