Skiing accident in Alaska - level 2
A professional American skier was performing a stunt for a movie when she hit some icy snow. She started to fall down the mountain.
She tried to use her arms to slow down the fall, but it did not work, so she covered her face. She fell 300 metres down the Alaskan mountain.
Amazingly, the fall left her almost unharmed. A person filmed the accident, and the film is now used as a warning to other skiers in an online safety video.
Difficult words: perform (to do), stunt (a dangerous action), unharmed (not injured).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
