Man inside a big water balloon - level 2
An American prankster performed a balloon stunt. He got inside a giant water balloon on a boat which was in a pool.
The balloon started to fill with water. When it was too heavy for the boat, it fell in the water. The American could not do anything; he was just stuck inside the balloon. Only his head was not inside it.
Water submerged the whole balloon and the man’s head. The people around the pool saw that this was dangerous and they popped the balloon.
Difficult words: prankster (a person who plays pranks –practical jokes), stunt (something dangerous), submerge (to cause to be under water).
