Here is some news from China. It is about a woman. She is drunk. She moves out of her window. She gets onto a clothes hanger.

The woman sits on one metal bar. She holds two other bars. Firefighters move quickly to help the woman. They put a safety belt around her. One bar breaks, but a firefighter catches her. She is saved.

The woman is around 20 years old. We don’t know why she did this.

Difficult words: drunk (not well because of alcohol), bar (long piece of metal), belt (piece of leather or textile).

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