Crocodile attacks a girl – level 2
Last week, Amelie Osborn-Smith from Hampshire, UK, was whitewater rafting on the Zambezi river in Zambia. Suddenly, a crocodile attacked her.
The animal bit the girl's leg, and it wanted to pull her under the water. Crocodiles normally do this with their prey. They pull it under the water and turn around several times. This way, they kill the prey.
Amelie was lucky because her father and friends frightened off the animal. The girl had injuries on her leg, foot, and lip, and she went to a hospital in Zambia.
Now, Amelie is in a hospital in London, UK. She is having nightmares, and she often remembers the attack. Still, she said that she was not afraid to return to Zambia. She said that one bad experience should not stop people from enjoying their lives.
Difficult words: whitewater rafting (an activity when people ride in a small boat full of air through dangerous parts of a river), prey (an animal which is food of a larger animal), to frighten off (to scare a person or animal so they go away).
