Man Falls Down a Building – level 1

Man Falls Down a Building – level 1

22-08-2016 07:00

This news is from Colombia. It is about a man. He is 43 years old. He is drunk. He is on a balcony. The balcony is 33.5 metres above the ground.

The man loses his balance. He falls down, but he is really lucky. A canopy catches him. His fall completely destroys it. But the man is fine! He is only confused.

Difficult words: loses his balance (if you lose your balance, you cannot stand on your feet well), canopy (a thing that is like a tent which people put above a building’s front door – if it rains, you are dry under the canopy), confused (if you are confused, you do not know what is happening).

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