Two people fall from a balcony - level 3

Two people fall from a balcony - level 3

It was a lovers’ tiff that almost ended very badly.

A young woman slipped and fell from a fifth floor balcony while arguing with her boyfriend who was on the balcony below. He managed to catch her as she fell but was dragged down himself by the force of the fall.

A neighbour from the building saw what was happening and grabbed his legs as other neighbours helped to push them both back up as fire fighters arrived at the scene. After 20 minutes, the couple were both lifted to safety with help from neighbours, the emergency services and a ladder.

Difficult words: drag (push), force (power).
