This news is from Australia. A man climbs up an arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. He sits there and relaxes. He is 75 metres above the Australian city. This is a problem for traffic. People close three lanes.

At 11 a.m., the man climbs back down. Police arrest him. They take him to hospital. Everything goes back to normal.

Difficult words: climb (go up or go down), arch (a curved part which holds something up), lane (a part of a road).
