Man Saves a Dog – level 3

05-08-2021 15:00

A passer-by spotted a dog struggling in the River Thames, so he jumped in to help. He saved the dog by attaching it to rescue chains near Westminster Bridge, but then he found himself in need of saving.

The RNLI launched a lifeboat which pulled the Good Samaritan and the dog from the water, which then re-united with its owner.

Difficult words: spot (see), struggling (having problems), RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution), Good Samaritan (a helpful person who helps because he wants to).
