Couple falls from a cliff – level 1

19-08-2014 07:00

A Polish couple is in Portugal. The two of them are on a cliff. They take pictures. Something happens and they fall from the cliff. Their children don’t fall. They are fine. They are seeing psychologists.

Police look for the bodies of the couple. They find them. They want to move them out of the water. It is not easy because the weather is bad.

Difficult words: couple (two people who like each other), cliff (high rock which is close to the sea), psychologist (if something bad happens to you, this person can help you).

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

How could this happen?
