Man tries “walking” to Bermuda – level 2

15-10-2014 15:00

A man tried to run around the Bermuda Triangle in a water walking ball. People reported him missing, so the US coast guard started to look for him.

The man was found disoriented and asking for directions to Bermuda. The coast guards noticed that he stocked the ball only with water and protein bars, and they tried to make him abandon his trip. He didn’t want to give up in the beginning, but he activated his beacon on Saturday morning and the coast guard saved him.

The man is now safe and the rescue operation did not injure him.

Difficult words: stocked (something stocked is prepared somewhere), abandon (stop), beacon (SOS signal).

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

Do you think that the man is brave or crazy?
