A car drives into the Niagara River – level 2

15-12-2021 07:00

Last Wednesday, people saw a car floating in the Niagara River near the Niagara Falls on the US-Canada border.

The car was almost completely under water, and police used a drone to see if  somebody was inside. A helicopter brought a diver who got into the car. Luckily, the car was not locked, so the man did not need to break a window. Sadly, when he got inside the car, he saw that the driver was dead. It was a very brave rescue because the water near the falls was very rough, and there was a strong icy wind.

Police learned that the driver was a woman in her late 60s, and she lived in the area. The investigation did not finish yet, but it seemed that the woman drove into the water intentionally.

Difficult words: float (to move slowly and easily on water or in the air), investigation (the process when police learn how something happens), intentionally (when a person does something because he wants to do it or because it is his plan).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
