Man is covered with bees - level 2
A Chinese man set a new world record on Monday – he covered himself with 109.05 kilograms of bees. According to experts, 10,000 bees weigh one kilo, so about 1.1 million bees covered the man’s body.
The man is 55 years old and has been a beekeeper for over 30 years. His fellow beekeepers helped him by pouring large balls of bees from hundreds of hives on his body.
Difficult words: fellow (sharing the same job), pour (to put quickly), hive (a beehive; a box for bees).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
