Two men help a woman – level 1

24-06-2014 15:00

This news is from China. It is about an old woman. She slips out of her window. She is hanging from the window. She cries for help.

The woman is lucky. Two men hear her. They come quickly. They help her. They hold the woman. People say that the men are heroes.

The woman is in shock. She is not injured seriously, but she goes to hospital.

Difficult words: slip (when your body moves and you fall), cry (to say something very loudly), injured (to have problems with the body).

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