Man was lost for 19 days - level 1

23-10-2013 06:00

This happens in California, USA. A man is in a forest. He is hunting. The man gets lost.

He doesn't know where he is. People look for him. It is not easy. They cannot find the man.

It is a hard situation for the man. He is hungry. He eats small animals like frogs and snakes. He puts leaves on his body. The leaves keep him warm.

People find the man after 19 days. It is a long time. The man is in the hospital now.

Difficult words: hunt (kill animals), lost (not to know where you are), leaf (green thing on the tree).

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