A Whale Wants to Eat Women – level 2

11-11-2020 07:00

A group of kayakers spent their morning in the waters of California, US. The morning seemed calm until something unexpected happened.

Two kayakers were watching whales who were about 9 meters away. Suddenly a whale came out of the water, opened its mouth, and swallowed the women. Luckily, the whale soon opened its mouth and the two women were able to escape. When the women got up to the surface, their friends came to help, and they got them to the beach. Whales are very strong, but the women did not have any injuries.

Researchers are trying to find the animal. They want to make sure that it also did not get hurt.

Difficult words: unexpected (surprising), swallow (to put food or drink in the mouth and let it go down into the stomach), surface (the flat top part of something).

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