A man rides a bike in China. He wants to cross a road. A car hits him. He falls under the car.

A police officer sees the accident. It happens close to him. He comes to the car. He sees that the man is stuck under it. The policeman asks people for help. Together, they lift the car. They save the old man.

People take the man to hospital. He is stable.

Difficult words: stuck (when someone or something cannot move or get out of a place), lift (pick up), stable (not getting worse).

It is nice that the people helped the man, isn't it?
