Men jumped from a building - level 2

Men jumped from a building - level 2

15-05-2013 06:00

A twenty-floor building in Pakistan was on a big fire. Many people were trapped in the building which was full of black smoke. Some people climbed on the windows because the fire was inside their office.

People on the streets watched this disaster. They couldn’t help. Then, they saw a man jump out of a window. Then another. The two men jumped out from a high building rather than die in it. Unfortunately, both of them died anyway.

By the time a helicopter came to get survivors from the building, four people were dead and a few more injured.

Interesting words: trapped (caught inside), rather than (instead of).
