Here is news from Brazil. A woman is shopping. There is a robbery. A robber accidentally shoots the woman. He shoots her near the heart.

The woman is extremely lucky. She sees no blood, but she feels pain. The woman’s bra stopped the bullet. The woman says that God saved her.

Difficult words: robbery (a situation when criminals try to steal something), blood (the red “water” inside your body), bullet (a small piece of metal which is shot from a gun).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Amazing, isn't it?
