Man inside a big water balloon - level 1
This news is about a man. He is from the USA. He goes inside a big water balloon. The water balloon is on a boat. The boat is in a pool.
Water goes inside the balloon. It gets bigger and bigger, heavier and heavier. The man’s body is inside the balloon. Only his head is outside of it.
The balloon gets too heavy for the boat. It falls in the water. This is dangerous. The man cannot swim. He can drown.
His friends see this. They jump into the water. They pop the balloon.
Difficult words: drown (to die because you cannot breathe in water), pop (to break open).
