Fourteen months at sea - level 1
A man goes on a fishing trip. The trip starts in Mexico in December 2012. The man gets lost.
He is at sea. He drinks turtle blood. He catches fish and birds with his hands. It is hard, but he survives. He is in the Pacific Ocean for 14 months! People find this man on a remote island. He is in his small boat. The man is saved.
The man’s family is very happy. His brother is in shock. His brother thanks God. The man’s mother is happy, too. She always knew that he was alive. She felt it. Her heart was with him.
Difficult words: survive (live), remote (far away), her heart was with him (she believed strongly that he was alive).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
