Hornets attack children - level 1

Hornets attack children - level 1

24-10-2013 14:00

There are hornets in China. There are a lot of them this year. The hornets are very dangerous.

These hornets attack children. Thirty children must go to the hospital. Some have 200 stings. One girl has 70 stings. She almost dies.

Doctors help the children. It is not easy. The doctors clean the children's blood. The doctors must do it again and again. It takes a long time.

There are more hornets because there are more plants.

Difficult words: dangerous (can attack you a give you problems with your body), sting (place on your body where the hornet attacked), blood (red thing inside your body).

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