Boy is saved in England – level 1

04-08-2014 15:00

This happens in England. A boy is in the sea. He gets in trouble. He is drowning. He is scared and very tired. He screams for help. A man hears him and comes to save him. The man has a camera. He films the situation.

The boy gets on the rescue board. The man takes him to the beach. His parents wait for him there. Around 167 people died in the water in Britain last year. Around 368 people needed help.

Difficult words: drown (to die in the water), scream (to say something very loudly), rescue board (object which helps you when you have problems in the water).

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