23-11-2015 15:00

This news is about a man. He is a volunteer firefighter. He wants to save a woman. She is in a house. This house is on fire.

The fire burns the man’s face. He needs a new face.

Now, doctors give him a new face. It is from a body of a dead man. The man died in an accident.

The operation takes 26 hours. It is a historic moment. The operation changes the man’s life.

Difficult words: volunteer firefighter (a firefighter who is not paid for the work – he just wants to help), burn (when a fire destroys something), historic (very important).

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