Police officers save a dog – level 1

10-12-2021 15:00

Now, it is very cold in northern Spain. There is a lot of snow. It is not very normal at the beginning of December. December 6 is Constitution Day in Spain. Many people visit their families. They have five days off.

Authorities say that it is better to go home. The weather will be worse on the weekend. Many cars will be on the roads.

A water reservoir in eastern Spain freezes. A dog gets stuck in the water. It cannot get out. The dog is in the water for several hours.

Then, two police officers help the dog. They take off their clothes. They get in the cold water. They break the ice. The dog is safe again. The two men are heroes.

Difficult words: day off (a day when a person does not work), reservoir (a large lake that people make to keep water), hero (someone who is not afraid, and he does something good for others).

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