Man saved with a ladder - level 1, A12

In some places in China, water in rivers goes up 1 metre every hour. One man was under a bridge and he couldn’t get out. Firemen tried to help him with a rope but they couldn’t help him.

So, they tried something new. They put a ladder on a big machine. It was a good idea. They got the man out. Then they took him to hospital.


Interesting words: rope (very strong string), ladder (equipment with steps used for climbing).
