Woman on a clothes hanger - level 2

Woman on a clothes hanger - level 2

06-05-2014 07:00

Firefighters rescued a drunk woman in China. She was stuck on a clothes hanger which was outside her window. The woman sat on one of the iron bars of the hanger and held two upper bars.

Firefighters rushed to the building, and broke into the home. They put a safety belt around her just as the iron bar broke off. Fortunately, a firefighter caught her before she fell.

The woman in her 20s did not answer any questions. We don’t know why she got onto the clothes hanger.

Difficult words: drunk (a person who drank a lot of alcohol and does not act safely), bar (long piece of metal), rush (move quickly).

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

Have you ever been drunk in a dangerous situation?
