Thai Boys Saved – level 3

12-07-2018 07:00

On June 23rd, twelve boys and their football coach were trapped in a cave in Thailand. Their 18-day ordeal and rescue efforts were closely watched around the world.

On Sunday and Monday, eight people were rescued, and on Tuesday, the last five were rescued. All of them are being kept in hospital for at least a week, and they have only seen their families through glass.

Difficult words: be trapped (be somewhere and not be able to get out), ordeal (a trauma, a very difficult situation), rescue efforts (the actions to save someone).
