Boy in a washing machine - level 2

A little Chinese boy wanted to fetch his toy from a washing machine. He climbed in, but his leg got tightly stuck.

His parents carried the machine out of the house and called local firefighters for help. Crews rushed to the site and took the washer apart. They rescued the boy and sent him to hospital. Luckily, he was not injured.

Difficult words: fetch (get), crew (group of people who work together), rush (move quickly).

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