Canadian woman has a problem - level 2

04-07-2014 15:00

A woman from Canada did not feel well, so she went to a hospital. Doctors told her that she was only suffering from stress, and they sent her away.

The woman was in her car when the same problems appeared again. She could not feel the left side of her face. It was hard for her to move her arm, as well. The woman was having a mini stroke. She also tried to breathe slowly, but it did not help. Later, she visited a different hospital and the doctors helped her there.

Difficult words: stroke (when an artery to your brain is blocked), breathe (to take air into your body and send it out again).

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