Boy survives a cold flight - level 2

30-04-2014 15:00

A teenage boy from the USA ran away from home. He got to an airport and hid in the wheel of a plane. The plane took off and flew from California to Hawaii.

The plane reached 38,000 feet (11.5 kilometres) and the temperature fell to minus 80 degrees. The boy lost consciousness. But here is something amazing. About an hour after he landed in Hawaii, he woke up. Doctors say that he was not harmed.

Difficult words: consciousness (when you are awake and OK), harmed (injured).

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