Landslide in a Village
The rainstorm was over, I dashed out from the house to free myself. Spending hours in the house really made me feel bored rigid (extremely bored). I needed fresh air and so I went for a ride in the neighbourhood of Bukit Katil. I enjoyed cycling along the roads that ran parallel with rows of tall trees. The atmosphere around me was refreshingly cool. In the midst of admiring view, I caught the sight of a house that was partly buried in the mud. I halted (stop) and looked at the house from a distance. I hesitated for a while before I went to look for a phone immediately. I managed to find one and called the police. Since it was quite a remote (isolated) area, it would take sometime for the police to reach there. Without the slightest hesitation, I dashed to the house to find out if any occupant were injured. I climbed up the fence and ran towards the back of the house. It was completely covered with mud and I could not find any space to go trough it. While I was climbing the area, suddenly I saw some movement at one side of the mud. It was a man with part of his body being buried under the mud. Quickly, I ran to him and pulled him out. I had to pull him with all my strength and it took me quite some time before I managed to pull him out of the heap of mud. The man was mumbling and he was not fully conscious yet. I tried to comfort him with words of encouragement. At last, the distance wail (to make a long high sound) of sirens broke the silence of the surroundings. A police car and an ambulance soon came into sight. The man was carried off on a stretcher by the attendants before a policeman approached me. I was relieved, at last, to see the most safe.
