Window cleaners have an accident - level 2
Two window cleaners in Shanghai went through a scary ordeal. They were outside the 91st floor of a building when their platform began to swing and hit the building.
The platform broke some glass – it fell into the building and down to the ground. The situation lasted for 15 minutes. People saved both men and they were not injured seriously. The cause of the incident is still unknown.
Difficult words: ordeal (a very difficult situation), platform (a “box” for standing inside), swing (to move from side to side).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
