Baby elephant in Sri Lanka – level 2
Hambantota is a port city in Sri Lanka. It is known for hundreds of wild elephants that walk around freely.
A baby elephant was walking near the main road when it fell into a drain. Local port workers and wildlife officials saved the elephant. They took it to a doctor and now they are treating it for a broken leg.
Difficult words: drain (a hole/a space in the ground where water goes if there is too much of it), official (somebody in a position of authority), treat (to give medical care to).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
