Big car in water - level 2
Heavy rains in China's southern region have caused the rivers to rise. A truck driver got stuck on a bridge there.
When local firefighters received the emergency call, they rushed to the scene. They saw the driver in his truck. They worried that the fast water would swallow the truck and the man inside.
They threw the man a safety rope which he later attached to his truck. A firefighter used this rope and a crane to get to the man and save him.
The driver wasn't injured but he was shaking after the rescue.
Interesting words: cause (make), swallow (make something disappear in water like when you eat something), crane (large tall machine for lifting heavy things).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
