Man in a dangerous situation – level 2

14-03-2013 06:00

A brave man jumped off the London Eye and he was hanging high in the air. He was in a straitjacket and he only had some minutes to escape. He was on a rope which was on fire.

Many people watched him.

When he had only little a time left, he managed to break free and then he climbed to safety. The situation was filmed for his new TV show.

Interesting words: straitjacket (a special jacket in which you cannot move your arms), break free (start to be free).

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