Couple falls from a cliff – level 2

19-08-2014 07:00

A Polish couple fell from a cliff in Portugal when they were taking “selfie” pictures. Police investigate the incident.

People found their bodies. They moved them out of the water, but bad weather complicated the operation.

The couple had children. They were next to their parents when they fell. The children are with Polish diplomats, and they are seeing psychologists.

Difficult words: incident (situation when something bad happens), diplomat (person who represents a country in another country), psychologist (doctor who helps you with problems with your mind).

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