Man Falls Down a Building – level 2

Man Falls Down a Building – level 2

22-08-2016 07:00

This news is from Colombia where a drunken man fell down an 11-floor building. He lost his balance and fell from a balcony 33.5 metres above the ground. Miraculously, the 43 year-old walked away.

A canopy over the front doorway caught him. His fall completely destroyed it but he was fine. He was only confused.

Difficult words: miraculously (amazingly), canopy (a roof like over a building’s entrance, for example), confused (if you are confused, you do not know what’s going on).

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