House in a river - level 2
A flooded river trapped a Chinese man inside his house. After eight hours of continuous rain, the river flooded roads and fields first, then it came to the village. The river was flowing around the man’s house. The man was inside his house and he could not get out because of the fast water. The situation started to be dangerous for him.
A rescue team came to save the man. Rescuers used bamboo to throw two ropes to him. He tied one rope to the door and then the people pulled him to safety.
Interesting words: trapped (caught inside), rescuers (people who save others in dangerous situations), tie (connect).
