Walking on cable - level 1

Walking on cable - level 1

28-06-2013 14:00

A man did a dangerous thing. He walked on a cable over the Grand Canyon.

The cable was 426 metres long. It was 457 metres above the ground. It was very hard and dangerous. There was no safety net. The biggest problem was the wind. It moved the cable.

It took him 22 minutes. People on the other side welcomed him. He said that he had been afraid.

Interesting words: dangerous (not safe), cable (long line from metal), safety net (textile which saves you when you fall).

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