Big bell falls on a man - level 3
It's like something out of a cartoon. There's a man stuck under this bell and it was so heavy, it took rescuers five minutes to lift it.
It happened at a museum in eastern China. The man was looking at the bell from below, but other visitors were spinning it which caused the rope attaching it to the ceiling to snap. It then came down on the man and trapped him inside. Incredibly, he wasn't injured at all.
It took rescuers five minutes to lift the bell using a pulley block.
Interesting words: snap (break suddenly with a noise), pulley block (special mechanism for lifting things).
