Man falls down in a circus – level 1
A Kenyan acrobat has big problems with his body. He is 22 years old. He fell at a Russian circus. A special net didn’t stop his fall. The man was quickly transported to hospital. A bone in his back was broken.
The acrobat was in the middle of his show. He fell twenty-six metres. He hit the floor. Doctors are trying to help him now. The director of the circus said that the net was tested before this accident.
Interesting words: acrobat (somebody who works at a circus), net (thing which is used for catching fish), accident (bad moment when you hit something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
