Man lived in the woods for 27 years – level 2

15-12-2016 15:00

One man from the USA lived in the woods alone for thirty years. He moved into the woods soon after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. This person has lived nearly without any human contact. He supported himself by stealing from nearby camps. Now, he has been caught and arrested.

To survive the brutal winters in the woods, the man built himself a large camp. There's no known reason for his lonely life.

Difficult words: nearby (near), arrested (taken to a police station).
