Boy sleepwalks into the woods – level 2

08-12-2014 15:00

A two-year-old boy from Poland was sleepwalking and wandered into the woods. It was really cold outside. The temperature was down to -7 degrees.

The boy wore only socks and a pyjama top. His body temperature fell to 12°C and his heart beat very slowly. However, this story has a happy ending. People found the little boy and he is now in hospital. Doctors say that he will make a full recovery.

A doctor said that it is a miracle that the boy is alive. After the boy woke up from a coma, the doctor talked to him. He said that the boy is a smart kid.

Difficult words: wander (to move without a reason to go somewhere), full recovery (when somebody is as strong as he was before), coma (when the body goes into a type of sleep that it cannot wake up from for a long time).

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