Thirteen Brazilian prisoners dug a tunnel from their cell and escaped. They even used a phone to film the escape.

The police suspended the prisoners’ guard because he didn’t check their cell for two months! The prisoners were free to dig their way out.

Police tracked down two of the prisoners already.

Difficult words: cell (prisoner’s small room), suspend (to make somebody leave their job for some time), track down (find).

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