Man was lost for 19 days - level 2

23-10-2013 06:00

A 72-year-old hunter was lost in a forest in California. He was rescued after hard 19 days.

That is a long time and the man did all he could to survive. He kept himself warm by wrapping leaves around his body. He ate squirrels, frogs and snakes to get energy.

People started looking for the man when he was lost, but it wasn't the official search that found him. A group of hunters found him in a canyon. The old man is now recovering in a hospital.

Difficult words: hunter (person who shoots animals), rescue (save), recover (get better).

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