Prison break in Brazil - level 1

02-09-2014 07:00

This happens in Brazil. It is about thirteen prisoners. They are in one cell. Their guard does not check it. They have time to dig a tunnel. They use the tunnel and they run away. They film the situation on a phone.

It is the guard’s fault. He gets in trouble for this. Police look for the prisoners. They find two of them.

Difficult words: cell (prisoner’s small room), guard (person who checks something), dig (to make space in the ground).

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