Shark kills a man - level 2

Shark kills a man - level 2

18-02-2015 15:00

A shark attacked a surfer in Australia. In the very next day and in the same place, a shark attacked a Japanese surfer. It bit his legs off!

Other surfers took him out of the ocean. They called for help, but he died from blood loss.

The surfers are sad because many of them knew the Japanese man.

The police are now investigating the site where the shark killed the surfer. The police said that they will try to find out if one shark attacked both surfers. If it made both attacks, the police will kill it, but the other surfers think that they should leave it alone.

Difficult words: investigate (to find information), site (place), blood loss (when your body loses too much blood).

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