Girl saves her father - level 2
An American man had an accident. He was cutting up a tree with his machete. He looked away for a second and cut his arm near the wrist.
Alone with his daughter, he sat on the porch. He tried to stop the bleeding, and he couldn’t use his phone. Luckily, his clever daughter, who was then three years old, did the job for him. She pressed 911 and put the phone to her daddy’s ear.
The man received emergency care when the ambulance arrived. He is now home with his family. His arm should fully heal in six to eight months.
Difficult words: machete (big heavy knife), porch (open area with a floor and roof that is at a house’s front or back door), clever (smart), daddy (nickname for a father).
