Man holds a woman - level 1

24-02-2014 07:00

This happens in China. A woman is in her bedroom. She locks the room. Nobody can enter it. She wants to kill herself. She gets in the window.

Her family wants to stop her. They ask her to stop, but the woman doesn’t stop. The family calls the police.

A firefighter is on top of the building. He is on a rope. He gets down to the window. When the woman jumps, he catches her. The two people get down on the ground. The woman goes to hospital.

Difficult words: lock (use a key to close the door), get in the window (climb into an open window to be able to go outside), rope (long line made of textile), get down on the ground (reach the ground).

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