Speedboat Is Out Of Control – level 2

23-07-2018 15:00

A sailor was trying to tie up his boat when he accidentally knocked the throttle. The boat started moving and threw the man overboard.

The six-metre-long speedboat began to move in a circle. Luckily, somebody spotted the boat and let others know. Lifeboat crew got a line aboard the boat and managed to reduce the speed.

The owner of the boat got safely to shore, but he had to go to hospital.

Difficult words: throttle (mechanism which controls the speed), spot (see), lifeboat crew (people who help sailors).

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