Boy between two walls - level 2

Boy between two walls - level 2

12-09-2013 14:00

A boy dropped his Playstation and it fell into a gap. The gap between the two walls was only 25 centimetres wide, but he still tried to get his toy back.

Unfortunately, as he tried to get it, he fell down. Because the gap was so small, he couldn't get back up. He got stuck between the two walls. It was not easy to be in there. The boy started to have problems with his breathing.

Local firemen were called to help him. They made a hole in the wall and pulled the boy out. He is fine now.

Difficult words: gap (space between two things), stuck (not able to move), breathing (taking air in and out of your body).

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