President Obama helps a woman - level 2
Obama talked about healthcare in the White House last Monday.
There were some officials were standing behind him. One of them, a woman, started to have problems standing upright. People, as well as the President, noticed this. He turned around and ordered somebody to take the woman inside to be checked by a doctor. The woman has diabetes.
The President said that this happens when he talks too long and he received applause.
Difficult words: upright (straight), diabetes (serious disease where you have the wrong amount of sugar in your blood), applause (when people clap their hands because they like something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
