Men fall into chocolate – level 2

15-06-2022 15:00

Two men fell into chocolate at a factory in Pennsylvania, US.

The men weren’t employees of the factory, and they worked for another company. People weren’t sure how the incident happened. The men fell into a chocolate tank, and the chocolate was about waist-high. The men tried to get out, but it wasn’t possible.

Emergency workers weren’t able to pull the men out, so they cut a hole in the side of the tank. The incident took place at around 2 pm, and it took one hour to get the men out. Then, they took both men to hospital.

Authorities started to investigate how the men could fall in the chocolate, but they didn’t give any information about the situation yet.

Difficult words: tank (a large container to keep or move gas, water, oil, or other things), waist (the part of the body between the chest and legs), investigate (to find out what happened and how).

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