Shark and Diver in a Cage – level 2
Cage diving is a popular tourist attraction in countries with shark-infested waters. Some people went cage diving off Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.
A shark went for some bait and hit the cage. It broke the cage, and the shark became trapped inside with the diver. Someone filmed the scary moment on camera.
After the shark escaped, the diver came back up without a scratch on him. He was able to move out of the shark’s way as it entered the cage.
Difficult words: shark-infested (many sharks), peninsula (a piece of land almost surrounded by water), bait (food which makes animals come), trapped (not able to leave).
