Girl cannot take her hand out - level 3

30-04-2014 07:00

It’s happened again! Yes, this time a little girl in China had to be rescued after she got her hand stuck in a drain.

The child reached through the drain out of curiosity only to discover that she couldn’t get her hand out.

But luckily, firefighters were quickly called to the scene in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province.

Using a hydraulic tool and lubricants, they managed to pull her hand out of the grill.

Difficult words: drain (frame of metal bars over a pipe which carries dirty water away), curiosity (she wanted to learn about it by playing with it), grill (flat frame with metal bars across it).
