How to Help Someone Who is Bleeding
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Cathy was holding her cat, Tiger. All of a sudden, Tiger spied another cat. She began to hiss. She jumped from Cathy's arms and scratched her. The cut began to bleed.
 
2     "MOM!" Cathy shouted. "I'm bleeding!"
 
3     Cathy's mom came running. She breathed a sigh of relief when she saw that Cathy only had a scratch. The scratch was pretty deep, though. Her mom went right to work to stop the bleeding.
 
4     She took a clean piece of gauze out of the box in the medicine cabinet. She held it against the scratch on Cathy's arm. In a few seconds, she checked to see if the bleeding had stopped. It had. Then she started to clean the cut.
 
5     "OWWW!" Cathy cried. "That stings!"
 
6     "We have to get all the germs out of that cut," Cathy's mom told her. We don't want it to get infected. Try to hold still."
 
7     Cathy tried really hard to hold still. She watched as her mom washed the cut with soap and water. Her mom patted it dry and put a bandage on it.
 
8     "There, good as new," Cathy's mom said.
