Jimmy lived in the country, and he loved playing in a river near his house. One day his father got a job in a big city, and he moved there with his family.
     Their new house had garden, but the garden was very small. Jimmy was not happy.
     "Is there a river near here?"he asked his mother on the first morning.
     His mother answered, "No, there isn’t, but there is a beautiful park near here, Jimmy, and there's a pool in it. Let’s go there this afternoon." Then Jimmy was happy.
     After lunch, Jimmy and his mother went to the park. Jimmy wanted to walk near the pool, but there was a sign in front of it. His mother read it to him: "WARNING: This pool is dangerous. 367 people have fallen into it." Jimmy looked into the pool carefully. Then he said, "It’s interesting! I can’t see them!!!"
