Earthquake in China – level 1
There is an earthquake in China. It is very strong. A woman’s house falls down. Her house traps her. She must wait for help for 50 hours. People save her in six hours, but she is going to be fine.
People find a three-year-old boy. He is in a destroyed house. He is stuck under a sofa. It takes a lot of time to save him. There is not much space. Also, a heavy beam is on the sofa, but people saved the boy.
Difficult words: earthquake (when the ground moves), stuck (if you are stuck somewhere you cannot move), destroyed (when something is completely ruined), beam (long heavy piece of wood or metal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
