Dog in a canal – level 2

27-12-2023 15:00

In Peru, a dog found itself in a canal and it could not get out. Luckily, police officers were on hand to help it out.

One officer even stripped down to his underwear and got into the water to help the drowning animal. He grabbed the dog and passed him to another officer. They saved the dog and he was only a little shaken.

Difficult words: drown (when you are in the water and you are dying because of it), grab (take).

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

What actions did the police officers take to rescue the dog from the canal on December 27th, 2023 at 3:00 pm in Peru?
