Six-year-old girl is saved – level 2

21-04-2014 07:00

A ferry sank off the coast of South Korea. A six-year-old girl is lucky to be alive. People rescued her. Unfortunately, her parents are still missing.

The girl was treated in hospital after her rescue. A lot of people tried to contact the girl’s relatives. Luckily, her uncle managed to get in touch.

The rescue operations are ongoing, but we have no information about the parents or her brother.

Difficult words: rescue (save), treat (help), get in touch (communicate).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
