Big bell falls on a man - level 1

Big bell falls on a man - level 1

22-04-2013 14:00

A big bell fell on a man. He was inside the bell. He could not move. This happened in China.

The man was looking at the bell. He was standing under it. The bell was on a rope. Some people were turning the bell around. It wasn't good for the rope and so the rope broke. The bell fell on the man. He was under the bell and he couldn't walk away.

Other people had to help him. It took them five minutes. The man was lucky because he didn’t need a doctor and he was OK.

Interesting words: bell (big thing in church which makes sound), rope (long line from textile).
