Lion Kills an American Tourist – level 1

04-06-2015 07:00

A tourist is in South Africa. She is 22. She is in a car. She is in a game reserve. The car windows are not closed. Windows should be closed.

A lion moves to the car. It stops one metre from the car. The woman takes pictures. The lion attacks. It bites the woman. She dies. The driver of the car is also injured.

Difficult words: game reserve (a safe area for animals), should (if you should do something, it is good to do it), to be injured (to have problems with the body).

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

Do you think the woman was wrong to do this?
