Carving pumpkins underwater - level 2
An aquarium in London marked the start of the Halloween season. Two divers carved pumpkins in a fish tank. It was, in fact, a competition against each other and the clock.
The two people are actually a couple, and the winner was the boy. He carved his pumpkin in just 1 minute and 57 seconds.
He said that carving a pumpkin underwater was hard. He had to move really slowly and watch out for fish.
Difficult words: carve (to cut something to make it look nice), the clock (time), watch out (be careful).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
