Metal in the head - level 2
A young Australian man was building a house. He was working in an excavator when a metal rod went through his head.
Other workers saw what just happened and tried to help him. They kept him calm and called for help. When paramedics came, the young man was given morphine. He held the metal rod and the paramedics moved him out of the excavator.
The young man was transported to a hospital. His condition is stable.
Difficult words: excavator (large machine for digging and moving earth), rod (long and thin bar), paramedic (person who helps injured people), stable (not changing and relatively good).
