Six-year-old girl is saved - level 3
Six-year-old Kwon Ji-Yeon is lucky to be alive after she was rescued from the sunken ferry off South Korea, but her parents remain missing.
This footage shows Kwon being rescued from the ferry yesterday by coastguards.
Kwon, who was separated from her family during the sinking, was treated in hospital after her rescue.
Many people took to social media to try and contact Kwon’s relatives. Luckily, her uncle managed to get in touch.
The South Korean coast guard said rescue efforts are ongoing, but it hasn’t been able to confirm any information on Kwon’s parents or brother.
Difficult words: coastguards (soldiers who protect the ocean near land), social media (programs you use on the internet to talk to other people).
