Woman under a car - level 2

Woman under a car - level 2

13-12-2013 06:00

A woman on an electric bicycle was hit by a car and trapped under it during rush hour in a Chinese city.

Many people didn’t care about the woman and carried on as normal. Some, however, came together and lifted up the car and saved the screaming woman. She was shocked and badly injured. She sat on the road for some time and then was transported to hospital.

When she was better, she thanked all the people who had helped her.

Difficult words: trapped (stuck), rush hour (time of the day when a lot of people travel to or from work, so the traffic is very busy).

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