Girl is found - level 2
A tsunami swept away a four-year-old girl in 2004. Her family never stopped hoping that she survived, but everybody else thought that she died. Well, she did not. She is back with her family now. Local media says that people found her nearly 80 miles from home. An old woman found her raised her.
The girl’s brother also disappeared when the tsunami struck, but he is still missing. The family has no plans to take a DNA test to see if the girl is really theirs.
Difficult words: sweep (move), disappear (go missing), strike (hit).
