Man under a ship - level 2
A boat capsized off of the Nigerian coast. A 29 year old man, who worked as a cook on the boat, was trapped under the upturned boat for nearly three days.
He survived inside a four foot high (1.2 meters) air bubble. Footage of his miraculous rescue has been published. A diver filmed him when he found the man. The diver reassured the man and gave him an oxygen mask. He told him not to panic and listen to him. The man was then taken out and brought home.
The cook was the only survivor.
Difficult words: capsize (turn over), miraculous (unbelievable), reassure (to make somebody calmer and less worried).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
