Man had his hand in a machine – level 1

Firefighters tried to save a man in China. The man was working with a big machine. His arm was blocked in the machine. He couldn’t move his arm. He needed help.

The firefighters saved him. They used special tools. They cut parts of the machine with these tools. People took the man to hospital. He was lucky. He had only a small problem with his arm. He will be in a hospital for only a short time. He will be OK.

Interesting words: firefighters (firemen), tools (things for manual work).

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