Firefighters Rescue Kayaker – level 3
In North Carolina, a kayaker was in the South Ford of the Catawba River when a strong current pushed him and logs into debris, which then trapped him.
Luckily, firefighters were able to reach him by using a large ladder and a boat, and the rescue took about two hours.
Emergency services sent the man to hospital and urged people not to go into the river, which is swollen and dangerous from recent rain.
Difficult words: kayaker (a person who goes out in the water in a very small, lightweight boat called a kayak), current (water moving in a certain direction), debris (pieces of destroyed material), swollen (full of water).
