Mother and son need help – level 1

25-03-2013 14:00

People were looking for a 41-year-old mother and 17-year-old son. The mother and son were lost in the mountains in Wales. There was a snow storm in the mountains. They needed help because their body temperatures were very cold.

The mother and son were found one thousand metres up. They didn’t have enough clothes. People took them to a place where a helicopter could take them to the hospital.

Many people died in the mountains in similar situations. People say that if you go up there, you must go prepared and you must have good clothes.

Interesting words: found (seen again), enough (what is needed).

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