Mother and son need help – level 2

Mother and son need help – level 2

25-03-2013 14:00

Mountains rescuers were looking for a 41-year-old mother and 17-year-old son who were lost in a tent in the mountains in Wales. There was a snow storm and they needed help because their body temperature was very low.

The mother and son were three thousand feet up when they were found without the right equipment and not enough clothes on. They were moved to a point where they could be picked up by a helicopter.

The mountains have already seen many deaths in similar situations. Rescuers say if you’re going up there, go prepared with the right equipment and the right skills.

Interesting words: rescuers (professional helpers in dangerous situations), equipment (tools and clothes for some sport or activity).

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