Woman between two houses - level 2

Woman between two houses - level 2

12-12-2013 06:00

It might seem unlikely, but this news is from California, not China.

A woman stood on a flat roof and she fell down. After the 25 foot (7.6 meters) fall, she became trapped between two houses. Firefighters arrived one hour after the incident and managed to pull the woman to safety. She appeared to be alert. Rescue workers put her on a stretcher.

No information has been released about the woman’s injuries. There is also no further detail on how she fell.

Difficult words: trapped (stuck), alert (able to think and communicate), stretcher (thing used for carrying injured people).

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