The little boy and the truck

by Eva
(Hamburg, Germany)

I have heard this story of a kid who solved a big problem. I think it is great!

A little boy was riding his bike when he noticed a huge traffic jam. He was curious to see what had happened and cycled to the police officer who was directing the traffic and asked what had happened.

- Do you see that truck? It was just a bit too high to go under that bridge and so now it is stuck there. The firemen are trying to get it off.

The boy looked at the truck and the firemen and all the hassle going on. The truck was stuck and it sure seemed no one would get it off.

- Why don´t you empty the tyres? the boy asked from the police.

And so they did and this made it possible for the truck to back away from under the bridge.
