Three men save a lady - level 2

A Chinese woman got stuck in deep silts beside China's Yellow River.

Local firefighters arrived at the scene to help her. They told the woman to spread out to stop further sinking and started to move towards her. The brave firefighters got to the woman and tied a rope around her. She was then pushed out of the silts and examined by a doctor.

Difficult words: silt (sand or wet ground near the river), spread out (make bigger), sink (get down).

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