The English Translation:

It was a beautiful spring morning when the alarm clock in Heinz’s room went off. There was nobody there to silence it because the boy was already squatting by the river scooping out water. That’s when he saw something glistening in his pan. He stopped, lifting the pan. “Gold, finally!” he thought, but then noticed the glistening gilded back of a fish dashing under the water. He grabbed his net and just managed to catch it.

The fish leapt up and bit him in the heart. Heinz died soon after.
