Two men help a woman – level 2

24-06-2014 15:00

An old woman slipped out of her window on the fourth floor. She hung from the window and cried for help.

Luckily for the woman, help came soon. Two workers who were painting the building heard her. They immediately ran to the woman to save her. They climbed up the building and held the woman until the emergency services arrived. People called the workers heroes. The woman was not injured seriously. She was in shock.

Difficult words: cry (say something very loudly), climb (go), emergency services (services like police, ambulance and firefighters), in shock (to be very afraid).

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