Een groep van zes studenten uit Auckland hebben een angstwekkende beproeving doorstaan, gevangen in een grot in Northland.
De 13 tot 15 jaar oude leerlingen van North Shore's Northcote
College kwamen vast te zitten in Waipu toen een
vloed de uitgang blokkeerde. Zij zaten gevangen in de grot vanaf
half negen 's ochtends en werden ongeveer twaalf uur later gered.
Zij leden aan een lichte vorm van onderkoeling en werden ter observatie naar het Whangarei Ziekenhuis gebracht.
A few notes- The Dutch don't really have a word for flash flood
( Flat Country- No Mountains- No Caves)
so I used plotselinge vloed which literally means sudden flood
but Flash Flood can be used as a term in Dutch, people here
may otherwise think it was the sea that blocked them.
- gevangen = caught vast (te ) zitten = stuck
I didn't want to use gevangen three times, it doesn't sound
right in Dutch.
I did this of the Top of my head but I always forget exactly
what am and pm are so I used 's ochtends ( morning )
otherwise replace by 's avonds (evening ).
-half negen ( 9 ) is correct ,the Dutch count hours differently
it means half ( an hour to go till ) nine.
- from since 8.30 is awkward English so I ignored it,
I translated it as if it it only said from .Source(s): Dutch and living in Amsterdam
