A woman from China is very sad. She wants to die. She wants to jump from a window.

The woman is in the window. From time to time, she shouts something. Her family tells her to go home. But she is still in the window. Firemen put a big air bag on the ground. The bag will catch the woman.

But the bag is not used. A fireman goes to the woman. He catches her. He saves her life. The woman goes to the hospital.

Difficult words: from time to time (sometimes), shout (say something loudly).
