Man under Snow – level 1

08-01-2021 07:00

Fulvio Giovannini comes from Italy. He loves mountains. He loves to ski. In December he goes skiing in the Dolomites, Italy. It is a good day. Fulvio does not think that something bad can happen.

A lot of snow falls down from the mountains. It is called an avalanche. The snow buries Flavio. He stays under the snow for almost one hour. He cannot move. He is calm because he can see some light.

Flavio has special equipment with him. Rescuers can track him. They save him.

Fulvio loves mountains so much that he wants to go back there. The accident does not stop him.

Difficult words: bury (to put something in the ground and to cover it), equipment (a thing that people use and it has a specific function), track (to follow a way and to find something or someone in the end).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
