Dog saved from underground - level 1

Dog saved from underground - level 1

A dog couldn't move for days underground. It was in a pipe for five days. The exit was blocked. The dog's owner was very stressed. People used a big machine. They wanted to make a hole.

Firemen helped too. They used a machine and they made a big hole. The hole was 3 metres deep. It took six hours to make this hole. Then one man went down into the pipe. He came back and he was holding the dog. It was a very nice moment. This story has a happy end.

Interesting words: pipe (tube for water or gas), owner (person who has something).

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