Shark attack in Australia - level 2

Shark attack in Australia - level 2

08-04-2014 07:00

A woman was swimming with her friends when she became separated from the group. The group came across a shark. They came together and started to swim to shore. The shark was three or four metres in size.

The 63 year-old woman disappeared. It is possible that the shark attacked her. People found parts of a woman’s body, but the parts could not be linked to the woman. Right now, police look for her.

Difficult words: separate (get away from something), shore (area where sea touches the land), link (have a connection).

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