    HELP

    I have read the following sentences at: help - definition of help by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    1/ he helped his friend to escape
    2/ she helped him climb out of the boat
    ===> It makes me confused. I need your help on the usage of "help".

    help someone to do something or help someone do something? Which one is correct or both of them?

    Thank you for your help!
