Drunk man falls down – level 2
A man from China was hanging dangerously upside down from electric wires. Scared local people watched him. He fell from the wires but he was caught by the other wires below.
When the officials were informed, they stopped the electricity in the wires. After that, the man couldn't be killed by the electricity. A firefighter was sent up to try to take him down. He wasn’t successful and after fifteen minutes the man got tired and he fell down.
He later told the reporter that he had drunk a lot in a very bad mood. He's now getting better and trying to remember exactly what happened.
Interesting words: wire (metal in a line that is used for carrying electricity), official (somebody who has official power in a society), mood (internal feeling).
