Man saved with a ladder - level 2, A12

In some places in China, flood waters rise 1 metre every hour. One man got trapped under a bridge. Firemen tried to rescue him with a rope but it didn’t work.

So, they came with a bit different solution. They put a ladder on a digger. They managed to reach the man and pull him to safety. He was then taken to hospital.


Interesting words: trapped (caught somewhere and not moving), ladder (equipment with steps used for climbing), digger (machine for digging holes).
