Man is rescued twice - level 3

Man is rescued twice - level 3

A man in Alabama was rescued twice from rising flood waters on Wednesday.

These television images show the man, waist-deep in water, clinging on to a tree, as floodwaters rushed past him.

A police officer waded into the water to rescue the man, who was then pulled in by rescue crews to higher ground.

But that wasn’t the last the police saw of the man, after they said they had to rescue him a second time, after he found himself trapped once again.

The man was rescued successfully for a second time. Police said the stranded victim not only put his own life in danger, but also those of the rescue crews.

Difficult words: cling (to hold something tightly), rush (move quickly), wade (to walk through water), stranded (stuck).
