Body on Copacabana

Body on Copacabana

08-07-2016 07:00

The Copacabana Beach is in Rio de Janeiro. The Olympics start there on the 5th of August. This is the first time that the Olympics are in South America.

However, there are some problems. Crime is rising. The Brazilian economy is not good. And now, body parts wash up on the Copacabana Beach. Athletes are going to play on the beach only metres from the body parts.

We do not know any details about the body. People think that the parts are from a right leg and foot.

Difficult words: rise (get bigger and bigger), wash up (something which is washed up, is carried by the water to the beach).

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