Person in the air - level 2

The people of London had a chance to see a great magic trick.

The illusionist who performed it was levitating off a side of a double-decker bus which was on its usual route. He was hanging several metres above the ground and holding it with only one hand. With the other hand, he was texting or waving to fascinated tourists.

People have no idea how he did it but it surely was an interesting sight.

Interesting words: illusionist (person who does magical tricks), levitating (stay in the air), sight (interesting thing to see).

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