Drone Saves Two Boys – level 1

22-07-2019 15:00

Australian lifeguards buy rescue drones. They train on how to use them. When they are training, they get a distress call. Two boys are in danger. They are caught in waves. In one or two minutes, the drone flies to them. A lifeguard controls the drone.

The drone drops the boys a float. They hold onto the float. They swim to land. They are fine.

The drone rescue is faster than a normal rescue.

Difficult words: lifeguard (an expert swimmer who saves people in the water), rescue (for saving people), distress call (a message that somebody is in danger), float (a thing that stays on top of water).

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