Small boy needs help - level 2
Small children shouldn't be left home alone. One Chinese boy proves it.
He was playing on a grate which is on his flat's balcony and he fell through it. He became trapped in the grate. He was holding it but it was hard. His body was hanging in the air. A neighbour who lived below helped him. He held his feet.
Local firefighters removed part of the grate and they saved the boy.
Interesting words: prove (show something is true), grate (bars for protection), trapped (be in a dangerous situation and can not leave).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
