Students lost in Turkish mountains - level 2
Three exchange students in Istanbul went for a hike. They planned the trip for only a day, but they got lost in bad weather and became stranded.
For eight days, the students survived by eating insects and sleeping in a cave. Luckily, one of the students managed to use his phone. It had only two per cent battery left, but he called the emergency services. The Turkish army came to rescue them.
Authorities sent the students back home to their countries to recover.
Difficult words: exchange student (a student who goes to another country to study), be stranded (when you are unable to leave somewhere), recover (to get better).
