Baby was saved - level 2

Baby was saved - level 2

03-06-2013 14:00

In China, residents in a building heard the crying of a baby somewhere in that building. They called the firefighters who later found out the terrible truth.

The crying was coming from a pipe for water. The baby was in it! They removed part of the pipe and then they cut it carefully. The baby was taken out and quickly moved to the hospital. It is now recovering and doctors say that the baby is fine.

The baby's mother had left him. This is a very common problem in China because families cannot have many children there.

Interesting words: find out (discover), pipe (tube).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
