Body on Copacabana – level 2
Parts of a mutilated body washed up on the sands of Copacabana Beach. They were just metres from the place where beach volleyball athletes will compete in the Rio Olympics. The Olympics start on the 5th of August.
The Olympics are happening in South America for the first time ever, but there are some problems. The crime in Rio is rising and the economy is not good. The incident on the beach is yet another stressful situation.
People do not know the details behind the mutilated body yet, but people think that it is part of a right leg and foot.
Difficult words: mutilated (cut, damaged).
