Men jumped from a building - level 1

A tall building in Pakistan was on fire. There were many people in the building. They could not get out and they were blocked by the fire.

People in the street were watching the fire. They couldn’t help. They saw a man who jumped from the window. Another man jumped a moment after him. The two men didn’t want to die in the fire. But they died when they jumped. It was a high building.

Later, a helicopter came. But it was too late. Four people were already dead when it came.

Interesting words: later (after some time), too (very).

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