Cyclist vs Bridge – level 1

22-03-2023 15:00

A woman is riding her bike. There is a bridge ahead of her. It is rising. It looks like she wants to cross the bridge anyway. She gets through the barriers. Moments later, she falls down. People run to her to help her. The bridge is stopped.

The woman is not seriously injured. She goes to the hospital anyway.

Difficult words: rise (go up), barriers (things which stop people from passing), seriously injured (when you are seriously injured, something very bad happens to your body).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What does the woman do once she reaches the hospital?
