El Chapo is a Mexican drug lord. He is in prison, but he escapes.

He escapes in a tunnel. The tunnel is one mile long. It is also quite big. You can move in the tunnel comfortably.

The police looks for the criminal. If someone catches the criminal, the police will give 3.8 million dollars.

Difficult words: lord (a powerful man), escape (to move away from), comfortably (easily).

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