Three men save a lady - level 3

A grueling rescue operation in China, as a woman becomes trapped in deep silts beside the Yellow River in the country’s Henan province.

After arriving at the scene and telling her to spread out to avoid sinking any further, firefighters crawled through the thigh-deep silt to rescue the woman, who had begun to have difficulty breathing. After nearly an hour, and with the help of ropes and those on the riverbank, the woman was eventually pulled to safety and given medical attention.

Difficult words: grueling (hard and tiring), silt (sand or wet ground near the river), spread out (make bigger).
