Hand on a foot - level 1

30-12-2013 14:00

There is an accident in China. A young man loses his hand. He goes to hospital. He has the hand with him.

Doctors want to help him, but they cannot put the hand back on him. They put the hand on his foot. The hand is on the foot for 35 days.

The doctors take the hand back off. They put it on the man’s arm. The man is really happy, but the hand is numb. The man must wait. The hand will get better with time. The man must exercise it a lot.

Difficult words: numb (without feeling), exercise (move the muscles to make the body better).

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