 It was their weekly Sunday football game. Alex, Jon and Ben were kicking a ball in a field near a canal. It had rained heavily that morning and the canal was full of water. The boys had the field to themselves that day.

 The boys were enjoying their game of football. Suddenly, Ben kicked the ball so hard that it flew over the railing and into the canal.

 Holding on to the railing with one hand, Ben quickly used a stick to try and retrieve the ball but he lost his balance and landed in the canal with a loud splash.

 "Help! Help!" shouted Ben.

 Ben's cries soon attracted Alex and Jon. They rushed to the canal. However, they did not know how to swim, so they started calling for help.

 A man who happened to be nearby came to their aid. He dived into the canal and managed to pull Ben safely to the side. Ben had drunk a lot of water and was quite shaken.

 By the time Ben recovered and wanted to thank the man for saving him, the man was nowhere to be found. Ben and his friends never played near the canal after wet weather from then on.
