Earthquake in China
There is an earthquake in China. It is very strong. A woman’s house falls down. Her house traps her. She must wait for help for 50 hours. People save her in six hours, but she is going to be fine.
People find a three-year-old boy. He is in a destroyed house. He is stuck under a sofa. It takes a lot of time to save him. There is not much space. Also, a heavy beam is on the sofa, but people saved the boy.
Difficult words: earthquake (when the ground moves), stuck (if you are stuck somewhere you cannot move), destroyed (when something is completely ruined), beam (long heavy piece of wood or metal).
