Fisherman is saved - level 3
A Taiwanese coast guard rescued a fisherman on Saturday after he accidentally hung himself upside down in the air on the boat’s anchor.
The fisherman got his feet entangled in the anchor line while he was operating the winch.
The more he struggled, the more tightly he became trapped.
Luckily, the fisherman was fortunate to have his mobile phone in his pocket, so he called the police for help.
When the coast guard finally arrived, the fisherman had been hanging in the air for more than an hour.
Difficult words: anchor (a heavy object on a chain which stops a boat and makes it stay somewhere), entangle (twist), winch (lifting device), struggle (try to break free).
