Big bell falls on a man - level 2

Big bell falls on a man - level 2

22-04-2013 14:00

A heavy bell fell on a Chinese man and trapped him inside it. It may sound funny but the man was lucky not to get hurt.

It happened at a museum in eastern China. The man was looking at the bell from below while other visitors were moving it. The rope wasn't strong enough and it broke. The bell fell down on the man and he got trapped.

Saving him took five minutes and the man is OK now.

Interesting words: trapped (caught), below (under).

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