Shark kills a man - level 1

Shark kills a man - level 1

18-02-2015 15:00

This happens in Australia. A shark bites a surfer. A shark bites a second surfer in the same place. This happens the next day. The shark bites his legs off!

The second surfer is from Japan. Many surfers know him. They see him in the water. They take him out of the ocean. They call for help, but the Japanese man dies.

Police want to find the shark. They want to know if it bit both men. Then they will kill it. The surfers don't want people to kill the shark.

Difficult words: bite (to attack with the mouth), surfer (a person who stands on a board to ride on waves).

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