Man drives into the ocean - level 2

Man drives into the ocean - level 2

13-10-2015 07:00

Police in Perth, Australia were chasing a man. After two hours, the man drove towards the beach.

He stopped at the beach for a moment. When the police car arrived, he drove into the ocean.

The unusual tactic, however, did not work. His car began to sink, so he climbed out of a window and tried to swim away. Police officers waded into the water and caught him.

Difficult words: chase (to follow and to try to catch), arrive (to come), wade (to walk in water).

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