Police officers save a dog – level 3

10-12-2021 15:00

Two Spanish police officers went way beyond the call of duty to rescue a dog as cold weather arrived in the northern part of the country.

The heroic men took off their uniforms before wading into a frozen reservoir in Canfranc, eastern Spain and dragged the pet to safety. One of the officers used a large tree branch to break the thick ice that had formed on the lake’s surface. He also used the branch to reach the dog that had already been stuck for hours. The men cleared a path for the animal to swim to safety.

The Spanish Meteorological Agency predicted heavy snow and high wind in parts of northern Spain, and authorities advised people to return early from a five-day break.

Difficult words: go way beyond (to do more than expected), call of duty (the feeling that someone should do something because it’s his duty), wade (to walk through water or other liquid with difficulty),.
