Man catches a baby – level 2

03-06-2014 15:00

A baby in china climbed onto a window ledge. It was looking for its mother.

The baby fell out of the two-storey building. Luckily, a man caught the one-year-old. A security camera captured the shocking moment.

The man said that he didn’t think too much. He was afraid that he might not catch the baby. He also said that it was human instinct to save the child.

Difficult words: climb (move), window ledge (flat narrow area at the bottom of the window), storey (floor).

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

Have you ever saved another person?
