Two people fall from a balcony - level 2

Two people fall from a balcony - level 2

20-08-2013 14:00

An argument of two Chinese people resulted in an accident. A woman was arguing with her boyfriend.

She was on a balcony and he was on the balcony below. The woman slipped and fell. Her partner caught her. But he wasn't strong enough and he fell, too. They were both hanging from the balcony.

People from the building saw what was happening. They helped to push the people both back up. Fire fighters arrived at the scene. After 20 minutes, the couple was both lifted to safety.

Difficult words: argument (moment when two people have a problem and talk angrily), result (end), slip (have no control over your body for a moment).

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