Couple falls from a cliff - level 3
A Polish couple fell to their deaths from a cliff in Cabo da Roca, apparently while trying to take “selfie” pictures.
Portuguese authorities are investigating the incident that happened on Saturday.
Rescue workers had to give up their attempts to recover the bodies from the Atlantic Ocean that night due to weather conditions but resumed the search on Sunday.
Both bodies were eventually found. Fire officer Bruno Thomas said the couple had been next to the cliff edge with their children.
The children are now in the care of Polish diplomats and are seeing psychologists.
Difficult words: authorities (people who are in charge of a country or area), recover (get back), due to (because of), resume (continue to do something).
