Stranded sailor rescued - level 2
A man took his ship off the North Carolina coast to go fishing, but when rough weather prevented him from coming back, he had to survive out at sea. The weather also prevented him from using his communication electronics.
He had some food on his ship but resorted to using his fishing skills. He ate raw fish and drank the rain water that he collected.
After around 66 days, the Coast Guard found him and took him to hospital. His family was overjoyed to see him again.
Difficult words: prevent (to keep from doing something), resort to (to do something instead), to be overjoyed (to be extremely happy).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
