Man Falls Down a Building – level 1

08-04-2021 15:00

This news is from Colombia. It is about a man. He is 43 years old. He is drunk. He is on a balcony. The balcony is 33.5 metres above the ground.

The man loses his balance. He falls down, but he is really lucky. A canopy catches him. His fall completely destroys it. But the man is fine! He is only confused.

Difficult words: loses his balance (if you lose your balance, you cannot stand on your feet well), canopy (a thing that is like a tent which people put above a building’s front door – if it rains, you are dry under the canopy), confused (if you are confused, you do not know what is happening).

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