Boy survives a cold flight - level 1
An American boy runs away from home. He gets to an airport. He hides in the wheel of a plane. The plane flies in the air. It flies to Hawaii.
The plane gets up to 38,000 feet (11.5 kilometres). It is very cold up there. It is minus 80. The boy sleeps.
The plane lands on the ground. The boy wakes after one hour. Doctors check the boy. He is fine.
Difficult words: hide (try not to be seen), wheel (circle), minus (a temperature that is minus is extremely cold).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
