Drunk man falls down – level 1

10-04-2013 14:00

A man from China was in danger. He was touching wires with electricity. He was up very high. People watched him. They called the firemen. They switched off the electricity in the wires. One fireman tried to help the man. He talked to him but he couldn’t help the man.

The man started to get tired. He fell down but the other wires stopped the fall. The man didn’t die.

He later told the reporter about the alcohol. He drank the alcohol because he wasn’t happy. He is now better. He is trying to remember what happened.

Interesting words: wire (metal line for electricity), happened (was).

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