Man catches a baby – level 1

03-06-2014 15:00

Here is news from China. A baby wants to find its mother. It looks for her. The baby climbs in a window. It falls out of the window.

A camera films this moment. It is shocking. However, the baby is very lucky. A man catches it.

The man was afraid. He wanted to catch the baby. He didn’t think much. He just did it. It was an instinct.

Difficult words: look for (try to find something), was (past tense of “be”), instinct (something that you do without thinking).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
