Men fall into chocolate – level 1

15-06-2022 15:00

Two men do maintenance work at candy factory in Pennsylvania, US. These men are not employees of the factory. They work for another company.

The men fall into a tank full of chocolate. The chocolate is up to their waists. The men try to get out. It is not possible.

Emergency workers come. They try to pull the men out. They can’t do it. They must put a hole in the tank.

The work takes about one hour to get the men out. They go to hospital.

Officials say that the men are not hurt. They now must find out how the men fall in the tank.

Difficult words: maintenance work (the work to fix and care for machines and buildings), tank (a large container. Where people keep things like water, oil, gas, and so on), waist (the part of the body between the stomach and legs).

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