Man shot himself with a harpoon - level 1
A man from Brazil shot himself. It was an accident. He was cleaning his harpoon. He shot himself on mistake. It hit him in the head, in his left eye.
He had a 15 centimetres harpoon in his head. It was very painful. He called for help. He went to a hospital. The doctors took this harpoon out of his head. It took them four hours.
This man was very lucky. His brain is OK but his left eye is not. He can't see with it. He will go home from the hospital soon. Then he will tell people his story.
Interesting words: harpoon (sharp thing for catching fish), painful (full of pain).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
