Man with no legs on a mountain - level 2
A 31-year-old man lost both his legs when he was 13. He fell from a train. However, he hasn’t given up on life.
He climbed a 2,000 metre-long mountain path. He used two boxes and chains. There were people who supported him. His wife waited for him at the top of the mountain.
This mountain is not his first climb. He also climbed China’s five sacred mountains. That means that he is the first person without legs to have done so.
Difficult words: give up on life (to stop doing many things and only to survive from day to day), path (way), sacred (connected with a god or religion).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
