A woman in China drives a car. She loses control of it. She suddenly swerves left. She drives her car into a river. A security camera films the moment.

Some people see the accident. They want to help her. One person has a jumper. They use it as a rope. The woman holds the jumper and people pull her out. The car goes under water.

The woman is fine. Later, people move her car from the river.
Difficult words: suddenly (when something happens quickly and surprises you), swerve (to change direction quickly), rope (a line).

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

Are men better drivers than women?
