Baby Falls Down Hole – level 2

01-02-2019 07:00

In Spain, a two-year-old fell down a 110-metre borehole. People started looking for the boy five days ago. The work is difficult because of the terrain. The rescue workers are on the side of a mountain, and there are hard rocks in the ground.

They say that the rescue work will not stop until they find the boy.

Difficult words: borehole (a deep, skinny hole that people make to find water or oil), terrain (how the ground looks and other physical features), rescue worker (a person who works to rescue – save somebody).

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