People in a high place - level 1
There was an accident in New York. It happened to two people. They washed the windows of a high building. They were standing on a board and they cleaned the windows. But the board broke.
They had to wait for help. They hung high above the ground. It was not safe for them. Firemen helped them. They cut a hole into the window of the building. They took the two people inside the building.
People want to know why the board broke.
Interesting words: hung (past form of hang), hole (empty space in something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
