Little Jim was with his parents at the park one morning. He was playing with his ball as he crossed the bridge. Unfortunately, his ball fell into the pond. He tried to retrieve it but fell headlong into the water instead.
A policeman patrolling the park witnessed the incident and quickly dived into the pond to save Jim. A crowd soon gathered to watch the rescue. The police officer reached Jim and pulled him to safety. Meanwhile, Jim’s parents were waiting anxiously at the edge of the pond. His father quickly helped to pull Jim out of the water.
Jim’s parents were glad Jim did not drown in the pond. They thanked the policeman gratefully for saving their son. As for Jim, he vowed he would never play with a ball near any pond, lake or river in the future. He had had the fright of his life and did not want to have to go through such a dreadful experience again.
