Boy in a well - level 1

Boy in a well - level 1

10-12-2013 06:00

People get often stuck in China. It is serious. One boy falls into a well. He is just two years old.

The boy cannot get out. He is stuck ten meters below the ground. Somebody calls for help. Firemen come in 30 minutes. They send down air because the boy must breathe. One fireman goes down to the boy. People move the firefighter and the boy up. The boy is safe.

The boy is only a little hurt. He goes to hospital. Doctors must still check him.

Difficult words: stuck (when you cannot move), well (hole into the ground with water), breathe (get air into the body).

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