Two Weeks in the Jungle - level 3

Two Weeks in the Jungle - level 3

People rescued an Australian tourist who was found alive in the Malaysian jungle after disappearing for nearly two weeks.

The man was urgently carried to helicopter that then took him to hospital. People discovered him after a manhunt of almost a fortnight.

The Australian entered a national park on Borneo Island on the twentieth of October and people reported him missing five days later.

The man, who is in his mid-twenties, was found in an area called Hidden Valley about five to six kilometres from the base camp.

People think that he ate virtually nothing apart from a few wild plants, but aside from hunger, he fortunately suffered no major injuries aside from some infected cuts on his feet.

Difficult words: fortnight (two weeks), virtually (almost), aside (except).
