Man is rescued twice – level 2

05-05-2014 07:00

There was a flood in Alabama, USA. Police rescued a man two times.

A video shows this man. He is waist-deep in water and he holds on to a tree. A police officer wades into the water and saves the man.
But that isn’t the last time the police see the man. He gets trapped again and police have to save him again. They say that he put his life in danger, as well as the lives of the people who saved him.

Difficult words: flood (big water), waist-deep (to be in water to your waist), wade (to walk through water), be trapped (be somewhere dangerous and not able to leave the place).

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