Skiing accident in Alaska - level 1

A professional skier is in Alaska. She skis down a mountain. She has an accident. She starts to fall.

She cannot stop falling. She covers her face with her hands. She falls 300 metres.

Amazingly, the fall does not injure the skier. A person films the accident. The video becomes a warning to other skiers.

Difficult words: amazingly (it is amazing, surprising), injure (to hurt), warning (something that warns you – that shows you what is not good to do).

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