Man stands on a dead whale - level 2
Here is some news from Australia. A young man was at sea and he saw a dead whale. Sharks surrounded it, but he still jumped into the water and climbed up it. He then stood on it for a while.
Authorities thought about fining him, but he did not hurt the whale, as it was already dead. The man’s parents said that he is an idiot.
Difficult words: climb up (to go up something), authorities (people who are bosses of a region), fine (to make somebody pay money as a punishment).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Do you also think he's an idiot?
