Students are on a beach. They are Chinese. They play in the snow. One student sees something.

There is a woman in the sea. She is around 50 metres from the shore. She walks into the water. The water is freezing. The woman wants to kill herself.

The students run towards the woman. They save her life. They take the woman to the beach. She runs away. The local police know about her.

Difficult words: shore (land along the sea), freezing (very cold), local (people or things from an area).
