Girl fell into a hole – level 1

Girl fell into a hole – level 1

11-04-2013 06:00

A four-year-old girl was saved from a deep hole. She fell in the hole in China. The hole was 17 metres deep. But the hole was also very narrow. It was only 30 centimetres wide. The firemen couldn't use their big machines. They had to use a rope.

The girl's mother was there too. She was scared. She spoke to the girl in the hole. She told her to hold the rope. The girl was saved. People took the girl to the hospital. The doctors looked at her. The girl was shocked but her body was OK.

Interesting words: narrow (not wide), rope (long line made from cotton or other material), be scared (have fear).

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