Teenager on a plane - level 2
A teenage boy lodged himself in the wheel well of a plane. The plane flew from California to Hawaii.
The teenager braved freezing temperatures and had little oxygen. However, he survived. A security camera filmed him in Hawaii. An airport worker noticed the boy, and people took him to hospital. He later told investigators that he was trying to go to Africa to find his mother.
Difficult words: lodge (place), well (space for the wheel), brave (to deal with a difficult situation).
