Fireman saves a woman - level 2
A Chinese woman wanted to end her life. She cut her wrist and she wanted to jump from a 7th floor window.
Passersby saw her. She was shouting and laughing from time to time. Her family and police told her to stop. Firemen prepared an air cushion below. Luckily, it didn't have to be used.
When the woman wanted to jump, a fireman caught her. The fireman was on a rope so both of them were safe. The woman was then moved to a hospital.
Difficult words: wrist (part of body where arm and hand join), passerby (person who walks by), air cushion (big bag with air which catches you).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
