It rains heavily in China. The earth is full of water. Land and rocks fall down a hill. This is called a landslide.

The earth covers four people. The people are not safe. Others come quickly to help. They find one person. This person goes to hospital. They cannot find three people.

Rocks still fall down. The area is unsafe. People must go away.

Difficult words: heavily (a lot), earth (ground in which plants grow), area (place), unsafe (not a good place to be).

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