Hornets attack children - level 2
Nearly 30 Chinese children were attacked by hornets and suffered serious organ failures.
The most seriously stung child had almost 200 stings on the head. Even less injured children have over 50 stings. Doctors have to purify the children's blood many times. It will take them a long time to recover.
One sixteen year old girl was stung more than 70 times while she worked on a farm. She almost lost her life.
Hornets are aggressive and dangerous and they are active mostly in the summer and in the autumn. There are more hornet attacks than usual this year. It may be because there are more plants.
Difficult words: failure (when something stops to work well), sting (when a hornet attacks you, it stings you), purify (make clean).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
