Two men fall down - level 2

Two men fall down - level 2

20-02-2014 15:00

Two daredevils in Spain tried to walk between two hot air balloons 10,000 feet (3,048 metres) up in the air.

They tried but did not succeed and fell down. But don’t worry, they had parachutes. A filmmaker filmed the attempt and put it on the Internet. The video is very popular.

The daredevils are part of a group of extreme athletes. They slackline in dangerous situations and film themselves.

The two men said that they want to try this again when the weather is calm.

Difficult words: daredevil (person who like doing dangerous things), attempt (act of trying something difficult), extreme athlete (person who does a dangerous or exciting sport), slackline (walk on a special rope).

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