Man tries “walking” to Bermuda - level 1

Man tries “walking” to Bermuda - level 1

15-10-2014 15:00

A man has a big ball. He puts this ball on the water. He can walk in the ball and it moves.

The man wants to do something dangerous. He wants to walk from Florida to Bermuda then to Puerto Rico and back to Florida.

Coast guards from Florida look for the man. They find him. They tell him to stop this trip, but he is stubborn. However, he later activates his beacon. A helicopter comes to get him.

Difficult words: coast guard (group of people who help people in the sea), stubborn (he does not want to change his mind), beacon (emergency signal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you think that the man is brave or crazy?
