Baby boards a bus alone – level 2

04-07-2023 15:00

A one-year-old boy was playing outside his mother’s shop in China. The mother was not with the baby, so she didn’t see him when he walked away.

Later, a security camera on a bus filmed the baby boy – he boarded the bus on his own.

The driver and the passengers saw that no adult was with the baby, so the driver stopped the bus and people called the police. Passengers took care of the baby until the officers came.

They found the parents of the baby an hour later.

Difficult words: toddler (a baby who is just beginning to walk), on his own (alone), adult (a fully-grown person).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What steps did the passengers take to ensure that the baby was safe until the police arrived?
