Please help me to correct them, thanks.

Last Saturday morning, it was a windy day. Peter invited his cousins to go swimming. They cycled to the destination together. On their way, they saw a little boy swimming alone in the

river.

Suddenly, they heard someone shouting for help. They turned around and saw the boy drowning. He struggled / was struggling with fear. Without hesitation, Peter jumped into the river and swam towards the boy. He tried to pull him back safely to the river bank.

Luckily, the boy was unhurt. He thanked us gratefully. He told us that he had a cramp in his left leg, so he could not swim at all. Thankfully, they cycled past the river and saved him a life. He would never forget this terrible experience.

Pardon my poor english. I have a couple of questions regarding this article.

1. Why "they heard a shout for help" is better?
2. " He told them that he had gotten a cramp in his left leg, so he had been unable to swim at all." Why is "had gotten" better than just "had" and why use "had been"?

Thanks

1-- Because we know who 'someone' is, so the word choice is wrong.
2-- Past perfect makes clear that the cramp happened before.
