Fisherman in water with sharks - level 1, A12

A fisherman was in a horrible situation. It was near Australia. The man was in water full of sharks.

People in a helicopter saw the man. The man is 49 years old. Sharks moved around him. The sharks were big.

The man was in water for 20 hours because his boat went under water. People found him and they took him to hospital.

He was on a trip with two other men. One of the men was later found too but he died. The third man wasn’t found.


Interesting words: boat (small ship), found (saw somebody again after he or she was lost), found (seen again after he or she was lost).
