[00:07.12]Lesson 16

[00:12.22]Exercise 1.1

[00:14.43]Husband and Wife Save an Old Man

[00:17.16]from Burning House

[00:19.15]One evening, my wife and I went out for a meal

[00:22.96]at a restaurant near our home.

[00:25.69]As we were walking back along our street

[00:28.93]we saw some smoke.

[00:31.24]It was coming from the first floor window

[00:34.15]of a house.

[00:35.64]As we walked closer,

[00:37.60]we heard a voice.

[00:39.67]We looked up and saw an old man.

[00:42.69]He was waving from the upstairs window

[00:45.78]and he was shouting loudly,

[00:48.57]"Help!Help!I can't get down the stairs!"

[00:53.19]Now flames were coming out

[00:55.60]of the first floor window.

[00:58.27]We had to act immediately!

[01:00.66]My wife had an idea.

[01:03.07]She told me,

[01:04.50]"Go and get the ladder from our house."

[01:07.76]I ran to our house quickly.

[01:10.47]While I was going for the ladder,

[01:13.07]my wife called the emergency services.

[01:16.47]I brought back the ladder

[01:18.47]and carefully placed it against the house.

[01:21.70]The old man climbed out of the window

[01:24.80]and I slowly carried him down the ladder.

[01:28.59]While I was carrying the man down the ladder.

[01:31.91]a fire truck and an ambulance arrived.

[01:35.36]While the firefighters

[01:36.96]were putting out the fire,

[01:39.09]two doctors took care of the old man.

[01:39.09]
