Hi,

I'm writing a story and I need your help...

This is the situation:

1. A 2 yr old baby girl was drowning into the pool.

2. Someone pulled her out, but no one knows what to do next.

3. The baby is not breathing and turning purple.

4. Someone jumps in and yells to the baby's mother.


He yells, "Hold his feet. Pull him up!" and when the mother hold the baby upside down, the men pats the baby's back and the baby begins to cough.

I am not writing this story in English, but this specific line is in English. Please help me!

"Hold his feet. Pull him up!"
"Hold his ankles. Pull him upside down!"


.....???

Him? You said it was a 2-year-old baby girl.

Besides, babies are usually children up to one year old.

Oops, her! thank you :)

The baby part doesn't matter. I only need that one line.

"Hold her feet(or ankles?) Pull her up! (or Hold her upside down?)"

Maybe just "Hold her upside down by her feet"?

Rewrite the following sentences using Passive Voice:
The storm damaged many houses. (Many houses were damaged by the storm)
Mr. Benson ___ you wanted to see me. Can we meet in an hour, because I'm really busy right now?
say
said
saying

I would be grateful for any help. Thank you in advance!
I would be interested to get more English grammar materials.
But all the difficulties I trust professional philologists and linguists by clicking on essayshark.com.

Your passive sentence is good.

You have not said which answer you would give for the "Mr Benson" sentence.
