Mother gets a different baby - level 2

22-09-2015 15:00

A woman gave birth at a private hospital in El Salvador. When she left the hospital a few days later, people gave her her baby.

However, she noticed that the baby had darker skin than she remembered. This prompted her to seek a DNA test a few weeks later. The test showed that she was not the mother of the boy.

After months, people reunited her with her baby. She said at a news conference how happy she was to be with her son.

Difficult words: prompt (make), reunite (to come together again), news conference (a meeting where a person talks to the media).

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