Accident of a baby elephant - level 2
A baby elephant fell into a water storage pit because the ground around the pit was slippery.
Local Chinese people noticed the animal. It tried to get out, but it just couldn’t. They called the police to help the animal. The police removed some earth at one side of the pit, so the elephant could get out more easily. After about an hour, the little elephant finally got free. It ran back into the nearby forest.
Difficult words: storage (a place where you keep something), pit (a hole in the ground), slippery (when something is hard to stand on).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
