This news is from China. There are two men. They work outside. There are little hills of earth around them.

A large machine is on one hill. This machine is very heavy. The earth falls down because of this machine. The earth falls on the men. One man gets away. The second man does not. He is covered with earth.

The man cannot move. He is stuck. People come to help him. It is not easy, but they free the man. The man goes to the hospital.

Difficult words: man (one man, two men), earth (brown or black material which plants need), stuck (when you are stuck, you cannot move).

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