Girl fell into a hole – level 2

Girl fell into a hole – level 2

11-04-2013 06:00

A four-year-old girl was saved after she fell into a deep hole at a construction site in China. At 17 metres deep and just 30 centimetres wide, the hole was too narrow for firemen to use any big machines. They used a rope to get her out. Her mother shouted at the girl to hold the rope tight. With the rope in place the team worked quickly to pull the young girl out.

The rescue was a success and the girl was taken to a hospital. Doctors say the girl had no serious injuries but she was treated for shock.

Interesting words: construction site (place where new houses are built), tight (strongly), treat (try to help in hospital).

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