This news is from China. In 1994, a couple loses their child. Their daughter is just three years old. They look for her for 24 years. The father is a taxi driver. He asks his passengers for help.

After 24 years, police find the daughter. The DNA test says that she is the couple’s daughter. The family reunites.

Difficult words: couple (a husband and wife), passenger (a person who goes somewhere in the taxi), reunite (be together again), DNA test (a test that can tell if you are related to someone).

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